Launch of Audit Services Framework


CPC are delighted to announce the launch of the new Audit Services Framework. This is replacing the hugely successful expired framework which over 150 CPC members utilised.

These are challenging times for the FE sector amidst budget cuts and area reviews, meaning that it’s even more important that Colleges select the right audit partners to safeguard their institution and provide assurance for stakeholders and Governors.

The new framework delivers seventeen highly experienced education audit firms providing CPC members with even more choice than has been available under previous frameworks.

There is a substantive mix of market leading nationally recognised audit services providers as well as a number of regional providers to meet the wide ranging needs of CPC members.

The new framework is split into two lots as per the table below:

Suppliers Lot 1 Internal Audit Lot 2 External Audit East Anglia East Midlands London North East North West Scotland South East South West Wales West Midlands Yorkshire Northern Ireland Other
Clive Owen & CO
East Coast Audit Consortium
Gateway Assure
Grant Thornton
Haines Watts
Lincolnshire County Council
Scrutton Bland
Wylie & Bisset

The launch of the new framework means that CPC members can continue to contract through an EU-compliant route underpinned by the support and guidance of the CPC team.

Full details of the new framework are available on the website but should you have any queries please contact the CPC Helpdesk Team at [email protected] or call or 0800 066 2188. Alternatively, you can contact Contract Manager Gary Sadler at [email protected] or 0161 974 0940.
