The Audit Commission, the local government and NHS spending

watchdog, has re-tendered its three-year PR and public affairs account,

currently held by Citigate Westminster.



The account, which is due to be awarded in the next two months, carries

a pounds 250,000 budget, of which ten per cent is dedicated to

evaluation and research.



The brief involves running the Commission’s press office, political

monitoring and organising events and conferences. The agency will report

to Stuart Smith, the Commission’s head of communications.



’We promote the best use of public money and are looking for an agency

with experience of the public sector - that is of prime importance,’

said Smith.



The Audit Commission appoints auditors for the pounds 100 billion of

public money spent every year by local government and the NHS and also

publishes about 150 reports a year on trends in public expenditure.
