Public Sector - PKF elevated to audit panel

Group A firm Pannell Kerr Forster has been added to the Audit Commission’s panel of external auditors, and immediately scooped a contract for work made available by Ernst & Young’s departure from the list.

PKF, which has sought to be included in the service for a number of years, won the audit of a group of district councils in Essex and Hertfordshire.

Audit partner Richard Bint said: ‘We see these as being prestigious audits which strengthen the work of our existing public-sector auditing.’

The commission also appointed Robson Rhodes to carry out more former E&Y audits in the South-West of England. Robsons is an existing supplier which currently provides audit services in the North.

The new firms were selected after a commission ‘beauty parade’ for each group of appointments. Andrew Foster, commission controller, said: ‘We anticipate these suppliers will continue the high standards set by our existing external auditors, and provide best value to public services.’
