The Audit Commission are a public body who are there to ensure that public services provide the best value for money. Public services are assessed by the Audit Commission by comparing the service that is currently being provided against the Audit Commissions values. In addition to this the Audit Commission ask that every council produce a Best Value plan setting out its aims and objectives for the following year on how they will meet the best value requirements. Poole Housing Partnership are expecting a visit from the Audit commission in October and we will be publishing the results of their assessment as soon as we receive them.
