​NHS Southwark CCG appoints external auditors

Following a comprehensive tendering process, KPMG LLP has been awarded the external audit contract for NHS Southwark CCG, to cover the period April 2017- March 2020, with the option to extend for a further two.

The CCG's auditor panel followed a comprehensive, robust process to appoint the new external auditor, with detailed evaluation and scoring of tenders received and presentations by bidders. The award has been accepted by the CCG's Governing Body.

KPMG:
- were judged to deliver the best value for money,
- proposed a clear risk based approach,
- demonstrated knowledge of NHS Southwark through their work as internal auditor,
- illustrated a good understanding of both the local south east London and national (for example, improvement and assessment framework) issues affecting the CGG and its audit.
