The framework covers all the requirements outlined in the Joint Audit Code of Practice and the Academies Financial Handbook 2016, and ensures members are covered by any future conditions imposed by the UK Government, Funding Bodies, Department for Education and other relevant bodies.

Audit services can also include financial health assessments, verification of financial accounts, statements of corporate governance, reports on regularity, and reviews of financial value standards.
