quango (Acronym for quasi-autonomous non-Governmental organization) Any of a number of bureaux set up in Britain with government funds. They are responsible for regulating or monitoring various aspects of industrial, political, financial and social welfare. They are not directly elected, but issue reports periodically on their operational findings. There is much public debate about these bodies, resulting from their expense and lack of accountability.
