For more than century, NPL has been the silent partner in industry, providing the measurement services that underpin the UK's prosperity and quality of life. Our focus aims to position NPL as a leader in its field, at the forefront of science, engineering and technology in the UK, to accelerate UK industry for the next 100 years and beyond, and this all starts with strong and reliable financial control and reporting.

NPL is seeking to appoint an agency for an initial 12-month period (with 2x 12 month extension clause) to provide External Audit services that integrate with the organisation's internal finance team for efficient and timely auditing.

NPL has been with legacy auditors since moving back into government ownership in 2015 and we now believe it is time to develop a new relationship with a dedicated audit team. As a now government owned organisation we are looking for auditors who can attest to a high level of control. This provides assurance to the government, good governance generally and financial reliability to our customers and owner.

Participants in the tender should ideally have a background in delivering work on behalf of leading UK and/or European science facilities or STEM communities, government arm's length bodies or other entities of a similar nature to NPL.

We welcome submissions from companies who fit the criteria outlined in this brief and can demonstrate how they will meet the brief and help to position NPL as the experts and authority in measurement.
