Grant Thornton have not issued an audit certificate, in accordance with the requirements of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 and the Code of Audit Practice, as they need to complete:

• The work on the Authority’s arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources. This work has not been completed because they have applied the Covid-19 - special provisions in the National Audit Office’s guidance for auditors (in Auditor Guidance Note 03) and will be completing this work to a later timescale. They plan to complete this work and issue the Auditor’s Annual Report by February 2022, which is within three months of the date of the opinion on the financial statements, as permitted under the special provisions in AGN 03; and 

• The work necessary to issue our Whole of Government Accounts (WGA) Component Assurance statement for the Authority for the year ended 31 March 2021.
