Dear National Audit Office,
Grant Thornton - Local Government Council External Auditors
Please confirm which council's are externally audited by Grant Thornton.
Provide a breakdown of yearly dates if held from at least 2010 -2016
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: http://www.psaa.co.uk/appointing-auditors/.
For any other information about local auditor appointments, please contact
I hope this is of assistance.
