How does PSAA procure audit services contracts?

The procurement of audit services for opted-in bodies is a key component of the appointing person arrangements.

Ahead of each audit services procurement PSAA develops and publishes a procurement strategy that is shaped by market conditions and the views of eligible bodies and local audit stakeholders.

Details of PSAA’s previous audit procurements are published on its website: the outcome of its procurement in 2022 for the appointing period 2023/24 to 2027/28, and the outcome of its procurement in 2017 for the appointing period 2018/19 to 2022/23.
