Audit Services undertake a variety of audit work within schools and academy trusts in order to provide assurance that schools’ financial systems and risk management arrangements are operating effectively.
We work closely with other local authorities and professional bodies to ensure that the services we offer to schools remain in line with statutory requirements and best practice, and we remain up to date with emerging issues. We provide internal audit services to all of the authority’s maintained schools and a number of academy trusts within the city. The section has a strong track record of providing a quality service to schools and academies and can demonstrate an excellent record of customer satisfaction in relation to these services. All of our staff are professionally qualified (CIPFA, ACCA, MIIA, CIMA) and are highly experienced in school audit arrangements including the academy sector.
There is no charge for the minimum service provided. This minimum service includes all maintained schools being required to have an internal audit undertaken by City of Wolverhampton Council’s internal auditors as a minimum every 4 years. This is in order to comply with statutory requirements and to provide assurance to the council’s Director of Finance.
