Early conversation about Revenues & Benefits and Internal Audit Services from 1 April 2023

The current arrangements for provision of Horsham District Council’s Revenues and Benefits and Internal Audit services expire on 31 March 2023.   Both services are provided through local authority partnerships through a delegation.  Should Councillors prefer to outsource the services at renewal then guidance to officers is needed in 2021 to allow a time for a full “above threshold” public procurement to take place. 


The purpose of this discussion will be to tell Councillors about how these services are operating and discuss the alternative supply routes with them.  The discussion will include consideration of changes of approach or changes of detail.   A report on the proposed route will go to Cabinet in November. 


Councillors who wish to read up in advance of the meeting should look at the quarterly reports to Audit Committee for internal audit and the most recent monthly Revenues and Benefits report (attached)
