The Northern Ireland Audit Office (NIAO) is seeking to establish contracts for financial audit services to be allocated in four lots. These will appoint service providers for the provision of financial auditing services, and other work to support and assist the NIAO where appropriate and where required in its external audit functions. The NIAO is responsible for the financial audit of Northern Ireland Government Departments, their executive agencies and a wide range of other public bodies, including health and personal social services bodies and local government bodies.
An insolvency specialist is required to monitor the progress of the Scheme and to appraise the Annual Business Plans and other returns produced by the Joint Supervisors. They will also be required to provide advice on specific and ad hoc issues arising as a result of DfE's oversight role.
