In a period of rapid change and significant financial challenge public service bodies are in need of assurance that they are on track and rising to the challenge.

Stakeholders – including service users, employees, funders, tax payers, elected members, trustees and governors – need to be assured that public service bodies continue to deliver value for money, are maximising use of physical assets and other resources, have appropriate strategies in place for leading and managing change, and are financially resilient.

As a leading firm in the public sector market, we have an enviable reputation for providing assurance to local authorities, the NHS and a broad range of other public sector bodies across the UK, both individually and collectively through our national thought leadership.

Feedback from national agencies and clients consistently commends the high quality of our work, the level of service we have provided over a number of years, and the overall value proposition we will provide in the future. This was recently recognised by the award of CIPFA’s Cliff Nicholson award for our innovation in public audit (2014).
