Guide to your rights

We have published some detailed guidance on your right to audit council accounts.  Here is quick summary:

1 – KNOW YOU RIGHTS

2 – DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT TO LOOK AT

3 – DO YOUR RESEARCH

4 – MAKE YOUR REQUEST

5 – BE PREPARED

6 – ASK QUESTIONS

7 – PUBLISH WHAT YOU FIND

Keep in mind that these are new rights that only came into effect in 2015.  Councils should have prepared for this but they too are relative novices in this area. We are all learning. Happy auditing!
