Annual Audit Letters

Dudley MBC's external auditors present an Annual Audit Letter (or an Annual Audit and Inspection Letter, depending on the exact areas reported on) to members and officers of the Council. The Letter describes the scope of the audit work for the year, and reports on matters of substance arising from that work.

The Letter for 2011/12 is the last to be presented by the Audit Commission. From November 2012, Dudley MBC’s external auditor is Grant Thornton.

Paper copies are available from the Council House, Priory Road, Dudley, DY1 1HF, at a charge of £1.00
