The Audit Commission, an independent public body, carries out various inspections of how the Council conducts its affairs and publishes its findings in reports. In particular inspection concentrates on our accounts, performance management and financial aspects of corporate governance (e.g. how well we prevent and detect fraud and corruption).
We also carry out internal audit to ensure that statutory financial responsibilities are achieved, and to assist managers in the effective delivery of services, seeking to ensure value for money. We maintain close cooperation with the external auditor to reduce overall audit costs.
