PSAA has published its Contract Monitoring Data Pack: Quarter 1 for 2023/24. We produce quarterly reports on our contracted firms, building up information as the year progresses. The data pack covers audit opinions, approved fee variations and electors’ objections as of 30 June 2023.
The backlog of unfinished audits continues to be concerning, with 516 audit opinions outstanding at 30 June 2023. The matter is subject to ongoing parliamentary scrutiny, including an inquiry by the Levelling Up Housing and Communities Committee on Financial Reporting and Audit in Local Authorities, which is in progress.
Contract monitoring data packs for previous quarters are available to view on our website.
