Housing benefit audit
The Accounts Commission has responsibility for auditing housing benefit (HB) services in Scotland, and our HB performance audit work is incorporated into our annual audit work of local government.
Our Audit Services carries out a rolling programme of risk assessments of all 32 benefit services in Scotland. The work complies with our principles of the Shared Risk Assessment arrangements, and we regularly review our processes and procedures to make sure they are risk based, proportionate, and scheduled on an annual basis.
