Answered By:

No. The London Waste and Recycling Board has appointed KPMG as its internal auditors who have audited the Board's operational procedures for the past 4 years. The Board's annual accounts are audited by external auditors (The Audit Commission from 2008/9 to 2011/12 and Grant Thornton from 2012/13). All internal and external audits are reported to the Board's Audit Committee and are available on the Board's website. No issues of concern have been raised in any recent audits and I see no need for commissioning any further audit of the Board's operation.
