Publishing the Appointment of Local Auditors


The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 requires authorities to publish a notice on their website when they have appointed their new local auditor. The notice should be published within 28 days of the appointment.

For ‘opted-in’ authorities a notice must also be published within 28 days of being notified that an appointment has been made by the appointing person.

See the 2014 Act and the Appointing Persons Regulations 2015 for the full requirements or download the following extract.
