Housing benefit audit
The Accounts Commission has responsibility for auditing housing and council tax benefit services in Scotland. This benefits performance audit work is incorporated into our annual audit work of local government.
Our Audit Strategy Group carries out a rolling programme of risk assessment of all the 32 benefits services in Scotland.
The work complies with our principles of the Shared Risk Assessment arrangements, and we regularly review our process and procedures to make sure it is risk based, proportionate and scheduled on an annual basis.
