For audits of the accounts from 2018/19, PSAA is responsible for appointing an auditor for the five-year appointing period to 2022/23 to relevant principal authorities that choose to opt into its national scheme.
We have produced an overview of the appointing person scheme 2018/19 to 2022/23, outlining the nature and scope of the appointing person’s responsibilities and explaining why PSAA was well suited to take on this role and our arrangements to ensure that the role delivers significant, tangible benefits for the local bodies which opt in.
The procurement of audit services for opted-in authorities was a key component of developing the appointing person arrangements. Details of the outcome of our procurement in 2017.
