The Accounts Commission

The Accounts Commission is a statutory, independent body which, through the audit process, assists local authorities in Scotland to achieve the highest standards of financial stewardship and the economic, efficient and effective use of their resources. The Commission has four main responsibilities:

• securing the external audit, including the audit of Best Value and Community Planning

• following up issues of concern identified through the audit, to ensure satisfactory resolutions

• carrying out national performance studies to improve economy, efficiency and effectiveness in local government

• issuing an annual direction to local authorities which sets out the range of performance information they are required to publish.



The Commission secures the audit of 32 councils and 45 joint boards and committees (including police and fire and rescue services).
