Our ICT Internal Scrutiny service is part of a wider programme of scrutiny we offer - Find out more >

Have you arranged your ICT internal scrutiny partner?

As part of the Government requirement to have an external company perform your internal audit, SBS has thoroughly analysed the full documentation.

SBS has identified ICT requirements within the Academies Financial Handbook (AFH). Although the AFH requirements are vague, we are confident that our standard ICT audits would provide appropriate scrutiny of this area. If your ICT compliance is a concern then please get in touch with SBS.

SBS is here to help.

We have the experience and expertise to:

  • complete a full internal ICT systems Servers infrastructure review
  • health check all important hardware components on your servers and checks for failures
  • a full report is provided with advice covering no less than 15 critical scrutiny checks

We recommend conducting internal audits on a termly basis, to keep on track for the external audit and give yourself enough time to address the areas highlighted. This means that your first audit of 2020/21 would need to be completed this autumn term. We are scheduling projects already so please book early to avoid disappointment.
