The relationship between Treasurer and PCC is essential to ensure accountability.  As a diocese we are concerned that Treasurers regularly report to their PCC on the state of the Churches finances and work with the incumbent and standing committee.  PCCs should make sure that they have transparent systems in place which ensure that financial records are fully available to the Standing Committee; that those taking on the role of Treasurer are known to the church community and that claims and payments being made are done with the full knowledge of the standing committee.
