Appointment of Auditor
Notice of appointment of auditor to Hertfordshire County Council from 2018-19.
Under Section 8(2) of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, the Council must publish a notice relating to the appointment of its auditor.
For audits of the accounts from 2018-19, the Council has opted into national auditor appointment arrangements with Public Sector Audit Appointments (PSAA), who are now responsible for appointing the Council’s External Auditor.
The PSSA wrote to the Council to consult on the proposed appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as the External Auditor of Hertfordshire County Council from 2018-19. We can now confirm that, following the completion of the consultation, Ernst & Young LLP have been appointed to audit the accounts of Hertfordshire County Council for five years, from 2018-19 to 2022-23.
This appointment is made under regulation 13 of the Local Audit (Appointing Person) Regulations 2015, and was approved by the PSAA Board at its meeting on 14 December 2017.
