Wales Audit Office

At the end of each Financial year the Council undergoes an internal audit, followed by an external audit undertaken by officers of the Auditor General for Wales. 

The office of the Auditor General for Wales have been undertaking a rigorous audit for the financial year 2018-2019 following some issues raised during both the internal and initial external audit for 2018-2019.

As a result of a further Wales Audit Office investigation, the Auditor General for Wales published an immediate report under Section 22 of the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004 on 12th October 2021.  A copy of the report can be found below.

The Council is now obliged to meet and consider the report and recommendations.  Following their meeting, the Council will publish a summary of its decisions in the public domain.
