Based on our tried and trusted approach to Gateway reviews, we have undertaken strategic reviews of council-wide transformation programmes, exploring the full range of alternative service delivery models, and developed and implemented an approach to assure ‘spinning out’ services, for example, into a local authority trading company. This approach covers the key stages of decision making prior to establishing the spin-out and the effectiveness of the new organisation once it has been established.
As with Gateways, our assurance reviews are constructive and forward looking, making recommendations designed to maximise the chances of successful delivery.

INTERNAL ASSURANCE TOOLKIT (IAT)OverviewThe Internal assurance Toolkit (IAT) is a strategic approach to strengthen corporate governance, and robust decision making. It is a process designed to improve the rigour and discipline in procurement, commissioning, change management and contract management, particularly for projects/programmes of work that don’t warrant an external review.
