Managing audit contracts up to 2017/18

Under the transitional arrangements, PSAA was responsible for monitoring the quality of the work undertaken by the five contracted audit firms undertaking work at principal bodies and the four firms undertaking work at small bodies.

For work at principal bodies, PSAA published an annual report on the results of the regulatory compliance and quality review programme covering all five firms. We also published an annual regulatory compliance and quality report for each individual firm along with quarterly contract compliance monitoring reports.

The final report under these transitional arrangement was published in autumn 2019.
