Dear Mr Boyce,


Thank you for contacting the National Audit Office (NAO).


The information you have requested is not held by the NAO - our role is to
audit central government departments, agencies, and a range of other
publicly funded bodies.  We do not have a local audit remit and do not
appoint local auditors.


However, the information you require is publicly available from Public
Sector Audit Appointments (PSAA), a company set up by government to
oversee the contracts of local auditors, following the abolition of the
Audit Commission in 2015.

The information is available in a spreadsheet linked from the following
page of the PSAA website: [1]


For any other information about local auditor appointments, please contact
PSAA directly.


I hope this is of assistance.


Yours sincerely,


Joseph da Silva | FOI Team
National Audit Office, 157-197 Buckingham Palace Road,  Victoria, London,
Telephone: +44 (0)20 7798 7000 | Web: [2]
