Public sector audit in a period of austerity and reform
Dr Margaret Greenwood is exploring public sector audit during times of austerity and change, as part of this ESRC-funded research project.
The project forms part of a wider programme of research into public sector audit and accounting and will comprise three research studies.
A significant part of this programme is focused on local authorities and is being undertaken by Dr Greenwood through our Centre for Healthcare Innovation and Improvement. Research assistant Lei Tao is also working on the project, after graduating as a PhD in July 2015, having successfully defended his thesis on financial reporting in universities.
