In this Insights In Focus episode, we discuss the effectiveness of local authority audit and assurance.
Many local authorities are facing a difficult financial situation, with pressure to deliver services at a time of stretched resources. There are also questions regarding the timely delivery and usefulness of their audited accounts – and whether councillors require financial training to support decision making.
Host Philippa Lamb discusses the issues with Meg Hillier MP, Chair of the Public Accounts Committee; James Jamieson, Chair of the Local Government Association; and Alison Ring, Director of Public Sector and Taxation at ICAEW.
