Department for Communities and Local Government.
http://www.info4local.gov.uk/documents/publications/1849159

Audit Commission off RSM Tenon's radar - An outright acquisition of the Audit
Commission has been ruled out by RSM Tenon chief executive Andy Raynor.
Speculation about the future of the commission has included its possible purchase by
an accountancy firm involved in public sector work. The Financial Reporting Council
suggested its sale could provide a boost to a smaller firm and open up audit
competition. http://www.accountancyage.com/aa/news/2028539/audit-commission-

The future of local government audit has been thrown into disarray - after it

abolition in 2012. Stay of execution for Audit Commission raises fresh fears | Public

2013 abolition timetable for Audit Commission - The doomed Audit Commission
has flatly denied government claims it is deliberately trying to postpone its abolition
following reports of a leaked internal memo suggesting it may still be in operation
until 2014. A statement from commission chairman Michael O'Higgins said it was
"working with government to ensure the transition to a new audit regime that is fit
for purpose and is completed in the shortest timescale possible".

Auditing the accounts 2009/10: Quality and timeliness of local public
bodies' financial reporting - A summary of the quality and timeliness of financial
reporting by councils, police authorities, fire and rescue authorities and local
government bodies.
The report covers:
      auditors' work on the 2009/10 financial statements;
      the results of auditors' 2009/10 local value for money work;
      the public interest reports and statutory recommendations issued by auditors
        since December 2009; and
      the key financial management and financial reporting challenges for 2010/11.
The report congratulates seven councils, one police authority, three local government
bodies and one fire and rescue authority for early publication. There is great interest
in financial transparency by public bodies at the moment and we believe that early
publication of audited accounts is an important contribution to openness and
accountability. http://www.audit-

NAO report reveals "limited" access to Business Link - The National Audit
Office (NAO) has revealed that the Business Link website is accessed by just 34% of
companies, despite the government promoting it as the “one-stop-shop for

According to the NAO, use of the website is "limited" with the amount of business
owners turning to the service for advice rising by only 5% since 2007. NAO report
