We have successfully provided audit and risk services to schools beyond our traditional Internal Audit role for several years and look forward to providing these services to schools into the future.
We have a team of professional accountants, auditors and risk specialists currently working within the Council’s Audit and Risk Service, undertaking assurance audits and making control and efficiency recommendations to improve procedures and value for money. The team currently carry out some Internal Audit work in schools to provide assurance on the controls in place to the Director for People, and the Director of Resources.
Audit Bulletin for Schools - We have been producing this bulletin since autumn 2010 to provide audit updates and guidance, share generic findings and best practice from audit activity, and to provide fraud alerts. This bulletin will continue along with our commitment to provide advice and guidance to schools on a day to day basis, without any charge.
