Notice of appointment of auditor to Central Bedfordshire Council for 2019 / 2020
Under Section 8(2) of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, we must publish a notice relating to the appointment of our auditor.
For audits of the accounts for 2019/2020, Public Sector Audit Appointments Limited (PSAA) is responsible for appointing an auditor to principal local government and police bodies that have chosen to opt into its national auditor appointment arrangements. We have opted in to this arrangement.
At its meeting on 14 December 2017, the PSAA Board appointed Ernst & Young LLP to audit our accounts for a period of five years, for the accounts from 2018/2019 to 2022/2023. This appointment is made under regulation 13 of the Local Audit (Appointing Person) Regulations 2015.
2019 - 2020
The draft statement of accounts was discussed at the Audit Committee on 28 May 2020 and released for issue.
