Prospectus 2023 and beyond

During Autumn 2021 all local government and police bodies will need to make important decisions about their external audit arrangements for the period commencing from the financial year 2023/24.

We have produced a draft prospectus to provide an introduction to the PSAA national scheme which invites views and comments from local bodies and other interested parties in relation to the aims of the scheme and how it needs to develop going forward.

Through this process we want to provide the opportunity to help us shape important features of the scheme ahead of issuing formal invitations to opt in to all eligible bodies in the Autumn. We are keen to receive your feedback concerning our plans for the future scheme.

We welcome comments on the proposals contained in our draft prospectus via an online survey. The consultation will close on Thursday 8 July 2021. A summary of the results of the consultation will be produced.

We will also be holding two interactive webinars to provide an overview of the draft prospectus and answer any questions that you may have on 16 June 10am to 11:15am, 22 June 3pm to 4:15pm and 6 July 1pm to 2:15pm.
