Report: Falkirk Council: Best Value audit report

December 1, 2016 by Accounts Commission

Audit Scotland has conducted two Best Value audits on Falkirk Council on behalf of the Accounts Commission. The most recent report in August 2015, concluded that the council needed to increase the scale and pace of change in transforming and improving services, demonstrate that its scrutiny arrangements were effective, and ensure that performance management and reporting leads to delivering transformational change.  

This audit will give an update on progress against the specific recommendations. It will examine the council’s approach to spending and proposed savings, consider if the scrutiny arrangements in place meet best practice, and will assess the effectiveness of the performance reporting arrangements in supporting the transformational change required.
