Clarified:

It is not for me to be specific as to the audits conducted by the CRB body however for clarity I require information that appertains to the inspection of the CRB bureau within any police force, (some forces claimed that the CRB funds their bureau) or any audit carried out on the information supplied by police force to the criminal records bureau. And any other associated audits that you have conducted whether they are financial the procedural or policy driven.

(For assistance if I might suggest this would include all forms of quality assessment carried out by the CRB, or the due diligent enquiries and responses conducted following complaint processes with their associated analyses)

It may assist if I suggest that an audit has a predefined parameter policy and procedure to explore and usually formulates a conclusion and analysis.

I am told that “Audits” are often formalised and created into documents, usually in a portable document format; predominantly for distribution to members of the executive, for example these may be for internal distribution within an organisation in areas such as a customer service, financial or performance scrutiny section within an organisation and shared publicly often with an organisation’s executive management team.
