Someone said :
An audit is only as good as its scope , there must be transparency in how its procured , how much it will cost and what it will cover so there is an idea of what the report will say at the end, in the sense that some audits just sign off accounts ok etc etc
I think that the rule that bodies in receipt of state monies should completely change their people every 3 years should have been brought in much sooner because this doesnt look like anything more than ignoring their iwn systems and rules which comes with being in a system too long.
If a very expensive audit concludes the same thing isnt that a huge waste of money ???
Why are you jumping to all sorts of conclusions about the cost of audits though? And surely the best thing to do is find out what exactly went wrong? The whole point of this is something went wrong. Why would you be pre anticipating a report? In that case you wpuld know the full extent of what went wrong and wouldnt need an audit at all.
