London councils to share internal audit

  • Comment

Camden LBC is set to share its head of internal audit with neighbouring Islington LBC, it has been announced.

The decision, which is set to save more than £100,000 a year, is the first joint announcement from the pair since plans to share a chief executive and management team were cancelled last year.

Michael Bradley, Camden’s head of internal audit, is to fill the same the post at Islington, which is currently vacant, and has been asked to merge the two audit teams over the next six months.

It is estimated Camden will save £60,000 a year while Islington will save £50,000 a year.

In December, when the proposal to share a chief executive and management team was shelved, the two councils told residents they thought more money could be saved through shared services rather than merging administrative teams.

At the time, they already had a joint contract for school meals which is estiamted to save the two councils around £900,000 a year.

Richard Greening (Lab), Islington’s deputy leader, said the shared internal audit service was “another example of our desire and willingness to find ways of working with other London councils to the benefit of all residents”.
