Corporate Registers

North West Surrey CCG is committed to the principles of transparent and open decision making. We have therefore established and agreed a policy to manage conflicts and potential conflicts of interest to ensure that decisions made by the CCG will be taken and seen to be taken without any possibility of the influence of external or private interests.

Our Conflict of Interest Guardian is Paul Hopper, the Lay Member for corporate governance and Chair of the Audit Committee.

Governing Body Membership and Register of Interests

The CCG keeps a register of interests for the members of the Governing Body, in order to identify and manage any conflicts of interest that may arise in the course of decision making when undertaking CCG business. This register is updated and included as part of the papers for each meeting of the Governing Body. The current version is here:

Governing Body Register of Interests - CoI Declaration

CCG Staff Register of Interests (Band 8a and above)

The CCG keeps a register of interests for all staff in order to identify and manage any conflicts of interest that may arise in the course of decision making when undertaking CCG business. These registers are reviewed regularly and updated .

The CCG publishes declarations of senior staff who are deemed to have a "decision making" role. We have used Agenda for Change Band 8 and above as the threshold for publication, in accordance with NHS England Managing Conflicts of Interest: Revised Statutory Guidance for CCGs (published June 2016) and on the recommendation of the Audit Committee.

Staff have been asked for their consent to publish this information. Where consent to publish has not been given, the Conflict of Interest Guardian reviews and considers whether the rationale for this is acceptable.

External Audit Services

Awarding of Contract for External Auditors to KPMG LLP

Following the conclusion of a procurement process for external audit services (undertaken jointly with Surrey Heath, Guildford and Waverley and Surrey Downs CCGs); North West Surrey CCG Governing Body approved the recommendation to appoint KPMG LLP as external auditor.  The recommendation was made by an evaluation panel comprising representatives from each CCG. The panel rated KMPG's proposal as achieving the highest score against the evaluation criteria and demonstrating the greatest value for money compared to other proposals received.

The contract with KMPG was awarded on 28 October 2016 and an individual contract order form will be issued (under the CCS Consultancy ONE framework agreement terms and conditions) for KPMG LLP to commence appointment. The contract start date is 1 April 2017 and the contract term is for 36 months (with the option to extend for a further period of 24 months).
