Audit Services

Based within Constantine House, Audit Services is primarily a statutory service which, through a risk based programme of work, gives independent and objective opinions on the control environment for Suffolk County Council. Controls reviewed encompass financial systems, corporate governance arrangements, risk management and performance measurement.

Establishment Audits are also undertaken and this includes the coverage of schools and a variety of other services provided by Children and Young People.

Audit Services are vital to ensuring the County Council maintains its excellent reputation and protects all customers, staff and councillors. We work with the Audit Committee, to give everyone a better understanding of the work that we do, and ensure we give assurance on systems and processes within the County Council.
