Dear Doncaster Borough Council,

I am writing to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act.

Please confirm who your local authority has appointed as external auditor for the financial year 2016/17.

Please provide a list of all accounting firms which have advised or continue to advise the local authority on each of its PFI contracts. I am interested in companies which have provided legal, financial, governance and audit advice at any stage of the PFI project from initiation through procurement to operation.

Please provide documents showing the local authority’s current protocols around determining and declaring conflicts of interest in relation to its external auditors.

Have there been any incidences of potential or actual conflict of interest in relation to the local authority’s external auditors? If so please disclose all relevant documentation relating to this, which may include but not be restricted to emails, memos, reports and declarations of conflict of interest.

Yours faithfully,

Megan Ingles
