Audit Commission to Offer Procurement Opportunity for Employee-led Mutuals to bid for projects

By David Bicknell

An article published by eGovMonitor has suggested that local authority audits could be outsourced to the private sector by 2012/13.

eGovMonitor suggested that the Audit Commission has been asked to develop a procurement process through which a range of firms could bid for the projects. These would also include employee led mutuals.

“We have been asked to design a procurement process that allows a range of firms to bid, including the possibility of an in-house bid, which could form the basis of a new and distinctive provider in the market, possibly a mutual,” Eugene Sullivan, Chief Executive of the Audit Commission said.
