In line with national guidance on the procurement of external auditors for NHS Trusts, an Auditor Appointment Panel (comprising three non-executive directors) was established by the Trust Board to oversee the appointment process and ultimately to make a recommendation to the Board as to the preferred external audit arrangements from 1 April 2017.
The panel has now concluded the procurement work which was supported by the North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative; this included a formal tender process under an agreed framework, reviewing the written responses submitted by the four bidders and a face to face meeting with the interested parties.
The written responses were initially examined, clarification of any issues was sought at the face to face sessions and final evaluations (based on key requirements, organisational capability and experience and pricing) were made for each of the bidders
The Auditor Appointment Panel reached a decision on the preferred option and recommended the Trust Board appoint KPMG LLP as the Trust’s external auditors from 1 April 2017 for a period of 3 years with an optional extension of 1 plus 1 years. The Trust Board accepted the Panel’s advice and the award was made on 23 November 2016.
