Annual Audit Letters

Annual Audit Letters summarise the key issues arising from the work that our external auditors carried out in respect of the year ended 31 March 2020. It is addressed to the CCG but is also intended to communicate the key findings identified to key external stakeholders and members of the public.

It is the responsibility of the CCG to ensure that proper arrangements are in place for the conduct of its business and that public money is safeguarded and properly accounted for.

It is the responsibility of our external auditors to plan and carry out an audit that meets the requirements of the National Audit Office’s (NAO’s) Code of Audit Practice (the Code). Under the Code, they are required to review and report on:

  1. the financial statements, regularity of income and expenditure and auditable parts of the remuneration and staff report
  2. whether the CCG has made proper arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources.
