It seems that the LSC is creating new audits so fast, they haven’t even got time to give them all names. I have been contacted by a few firms who have had audits that combine elements of the Specialist Quality Mark with the notorious Fianancial Stewardship audit.
One firm told me they’d been warned at the opening meeting that they were almost certain to get a Contract Notice – and not to worry about it (!) because that was the outcome in the majority of cases. Fore-warned is fore-armed, so check out the audit plan.
