The Government announced its intention to disband the Audit Commission in August 2010. The NAO will not be replacing the Audit Commission but will be building some value-for-money studies into its work programme which consider local services more explicitly.
This review summarises the work we have carried out around local services since 2008. It communicates the wide range of work we have undertaken and the main lessons that have arisen from it.
Appendix One lists the reports by sector. Appendix Two lists reports by date and summarises each report’s findings and the extent to which local delivery was considered.
