If your concern or enquiry relates to spending in local government, you will need to contact the Audit Commission.

Local government

The NAO does not audit local government spending. The Audit Commission is responsible for appointing the auditors for local authorities and health service bodies in England and for promoting value for money in these sectors.If your enquiry relates to a local authority (e.g. a council) or a local body (e.g. police authority, health authority or housing association), you will need to contact the Audit Commission.In August 2010, the government announced its intention to abolish the Audit Commission. Future arrangements for auditing local government spending will be subject to Parliamentary legislation. If you have an enquiry about the NAO’s future involvement in the audit of Local Government, please use the Contact us form.


The NAO does not publish statistical information. If you have a general enquiry about UK statistics see the Office for National Statistics (ONS).If you have an enquiry about a statistic in one of our reports, please use the Contact us form.
