The Committee considered a report from the Head of Finance seeking a recommendation to Council in relation to the future process for external auditor appointments. The Head of Finance joined the discussion for this item to answer any members questions.


During the course of the debate, members noted that ‘opting-in’ to the Public Sector Audit Appointments (PSAA) arrangements could see the Council realise savings through economies of scale with the partner authorities in the 5 Councils Contract. The procurement exercise would also be conducted at no cost or administrative burden to the Council.


RECOMMENDED that the Council opts in to the appointing person arrangements made by the Public Sector Audit Appointments (PSAA) for the appointment of external auditors.
