Public sector experts providing high quality, innovative services.

The reduction in central government funding, the changing regulatory environment, growing requirements to integrate public services and opportunities to work with private sector providers and jointly with other public sector organisations are only some of the challenges our public sector clients face. BDO is committed to providing up-to-date advice for public sector clients as they navigate uncertain times and new challenges.

Our Public Sector team focuses on providing external audit, internal audit and consulting services to Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, Foundation Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and all areas of central government. Our Partners have a long track record of working with public sector clients and leading industry associations (eg HFMA, NHS Providers) and regularly provide media comment on issues affecting the public sector (eg Local Government Chronicle, Health Service Journal). We have good relationships with complementary public sector service providers.

Our public sector internal audit practice works with clients to minimise operational risk and promote good governance in public sector organisations. This can be done on a co-sourced or fully outsourced basis.

We pride ourselves on presenting easy-to-understand findings to Audit Committees and practical recommendations for our clients to implement. All staff in our internal audit and external audit teams are members of their relevant chartered body (e.g. CII, ACCA, ICAEW, CIPFA) as well as having specialist qualifications (eg CISA). We keep our clients informed of changes to relevant standards and improvements to best practice through regular client updates and technical seminars.
