Statutory Audit and Multi-Specialty Services and Advisory Consultancy Services (Ref: 2024/S 000-002425)


This framework offers a legally compliant route for members to access a comprehensive range of audit services aligned with current and future legislation and audit best practices.

The framework includes seven lots covering external and internal audits, counter fraud services, workforce investigation services, local security management specialists, and consultancy audit and financial services. It serves as a robust tool to address fraud prevention and investigation needs while conforming to NHS standards and regulations.


  • Shortened procurement time as the advertisement in FTS and PQQ stage has already been undertaken
  • The DPS encourages competition as providers can apply to get on the DPS during its period of validity
  • Procuring organisations can develop their own specification, utilising pre-developed templates, to meet their own requirements and formulate their award criteria more precisely
  • Award of individual contracts can be quicker than other procedures with the minimum time limit for return of tenders being 10 days
  • Providers must meet minimum criteria to be awarded on the DPS
  • A full suite of mini competition templates is available to ease the competition process, and the Hub can provide help and support in running mini-competitions
