We had the pleasure of working with the Diocese of Westminster Trust to secure and deliver their Internal Audit Services.
The Trust wanted to receive bids from a range of audit firms that had experience of the academy sector and so decided on using the CMP Education Buying DPS for Financial Advisory and External Audit Services, as it allows customers the flexibility of inviting suppliers to the bidding round following an assessment.
As a growing Trust, the Diocese of Westminster Academy Trust was looking to partner with a trusted Internal Auditor to help manage the financial risks associated with a growing educational establishment. The Trust wanted to partner with an experienced auditor to report into the Audit and Risk Committee & work alongside the finance team.
It was a key objective for the Trust to appoint a company that had sufficient experience in working with Multi-Academy Trusts, that understands the risks and challenges faced by a growing organisation.
The MAT wanted to adopt a risk-based approach to auditing to target priorities and efforts the achieve maximum impact.
While this was a new contract requirement, the Trust were keen to ensure it was affordable and delivered great value for money.
Invite specific suppliers to join the DPS so they could submit a bid for the Trust.
Draft the specification and tender documents for the Trust.
Coordinate the evaluation process, including providing templates for evaluation, arranging and hosting presentations and drafting the supplier feedback letters on behalf of the Trust.
