DA Partnership registered 'to facilitate Audit Commission mutual'

Audit Commission chief registered DA Partnership 'to prepare for employee-led venture'

THE FIRST STEP to establishing a mutual out of the soon-to-be-extinct Audit Commission has been taken, with the registering of a company by head of audit Gareth Davies.

Contrary to earlier reports, the firm known as DA Partnership is not his own venture, but an effort to “prepare for what’s coming next”.

An employee-owned bid for former commission work would require a company under which to trade and Davies said he acted entirely on behalf of staff, dismissing suggestions that he will head up the mutual.

Davies refused to comment further on the purpose of DA Partnership and would not be drawn on its name, saying he could not reveal any more detail before the procurement process for commission work begins in a few weeks.
