Annual external audit

Each year external auditors issue a report about our financial arrangements, looking at securing economy, efficiency, effectiveness, value for money and our overall financial performance.

The work carried out in preparing this report is used in conjunction with other work undertaken by the auditors as part of their annual assessment of our Use of Resources Judgements which are reported each November.

The annual audit and inspection letter incorporates all external audit work carried out during the year and reports on our overall performance.
