About the Local Audit Quality Forum (LAQF)

Anticipated Benefits

Our intention is that the LAQF will:

  1. raise the profile of local audit and lead to a greater appreciation of its critical role as a foundation stone of good governance and strong public accountability;
  2. deliver and, using clearly defined key performance indicators, measure real improvements in the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of local audit;
  3. enable the development of a much deeper and engaged relationship between PSAA and audited bodies;
  4. create a much more joined-up local audit community working collaboratively to deliver the highest standards and best outcomes; and
  5. be perceived as a major added-value benefit and an impressive advertisement for membership of the appointing person scheme.
