Gwent Police Authority Annual Audit Letter 2009-10

28 Feb 2011 - 9:02am

This Annual Audit Letter (the Letter) to members of the Gwent Police Authority (the Authority) summarises the conclusions from my 2009-10 audit. It reports for Authority members the significant issues arising from my audit, together with my comments on other current issues. The work reported upon in this Letter was set out in the agreed 2009-10 Outline Strategy. This letter has been sent by John Herniman on behalf of the Appointed Auditor

From my financial audit work I have concluded that the Authority’s resources were, in all material respects, properly used and accounted for in 2009-10:

  • the Authority’s 2009-10 accounts were properly prepared and materially accurate, and work continues to ensure the consistent treatment across Wales of Police Authorities of Wales transactions in the 2010-11 accounts; 
  • the Authority met its revenue budget for 2009-10, and understands it has significant financial challenges ahead; 
  • the Authority had effective financial management arrangements; and 
  • the Authority’s significant financial systems were fit for purpose
