External Audit Results Report – 2021/22
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority has now received our Audit Results Report, for the year ended 31st March 2022, from Ernst & Young LLP (EY); our external auditors.
The Combined Authority’s Audit and Governance Committee will consider the report and discuss the contents of it with representatives of EY at their meeting on Friday 26th January.
A link the report can be found below.
Responding to the Audit Results Report, a spokesperson for the Combined Authority said:
“The report received from EY covers issues dating back to the 2021/22 financial year, which ended almost two years ago on 31st March 2022. Many of the issues noted in the report are therefore historic.
“By working closely with EY, our Audit and Governance Committee and the Independent Improvement Board all of these issues have been addressed and the majority have been resolved.
“On page 39 of the Audit Results Report, EY acknowledge this progress saying “the Authority has taken steps to address the recommendations raised” before highlighting demonstratable actions taken to address the concerns previously raised, including those relating to improvement, to senior managerial capacity and to issues relating to Members’ Code of Conduct.
“While we warmly welcome this recognition of our progress, like every organisation, we know that we can make further improvements.
“The Combined Authority remain committed to working with EY, the Audit and Governance Committee and the Independent Improvement Board to drive these further improvements forward.”
