Below is a list of people who have been through a 2 day internal auditor course organised by WALC in February 2018. WALC is not employing these potential Internal auditors but we have confirmed that they have Professional Indemnity Insurance. They are self employed and have agreed to charge according to the below scale of fees for this first year.

It is not a requirement to employ these Auditors but particularly for small councils with turnover of less than £25K ther is no requirement to have an external audit therefore the Council is very dependant on the quality of their internal auditor if a member of the public raises a challenge to the Parish Council.  I wanted to be confident in being able to recommend some people able to to complete an internal audit to an acceptable standard.

The Potential auditors are

  • Peter Oakley based in Tanworth in Arden;   
  • Bill Wooliscroft  based in Monks Kirby;   
  • Eleanor Chowdry based in shrewley;     
  • Trevor Gill based at Avon Dassett; 
  • Jacqui Sinclair based at Tysoe;     

If you wish to consider employing any of them please contact the individuals directly via the email given.

GPN465 Internal Audit Schedule is the list of what a clerk should have available for the audit process.This is relevant to all clerks irrespective of which Auditor they use.
