To opt into PSAA Framework for appointing External Auditors for the Statutory accounts.


Decision Summary

The Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s (PCC) Business Coordination Board (“board”) meeting on 6th February 2017 considered and approved the proposal to allow Public Service Auditor Appointments (PSAA) to act on the Commissioner’s behalf in selecting and appointing its external auditor.

The current external auditor’s contract is due for renewal for 2018/19.

In July 2016, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government specified PSAA as an appointing person under Regulation 3 of the Local Audit (Appointing Person) Regulations 2015. This means that PSAA can make auditor appointments for audits of the accounts from 2018/19 of principal authorities that choose to opt in to its arrangements.

By opting into this framework we will be taking the same course as our Collaborative partners of Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and the Fire and Rescue Service.
