South West Audit Partnership

About us

SWAP is a not for profit organisation that focusses on internal audit but also offers a variety of independent business improvement and assurance services designed to help all public sector entities achieve their goals.

How confident are you that your IT security is up to scratch, or that you could continue to run your organisation if a major IT system failed? Are you constantly firefighting unforeseen events, or are you worried a major project might fail to deliver what you want? How do those charged with overseeing governance have confidence in the suitability of financial processes and procedures?

SWAP can support your organisation achieve its full potential by working with you to tackle these questions - either as a one-off appointment or on a longer term contracted basis. 

Through our network of clients, opportunities for efficiency, benchmarking and sharing of best practice abound these are not wasted at SWAP.  Our aim is to provide support and added value to every organisation we work with so that they enjoy significant increases in productivity and quality.

We are proud of the depth and breadth of talent we have to offer in respect of Information Technology Audit and Counter Fraud services.  We have concentrated our efforts in increasing our resources in both these areas, recognising that many organisations struggle to provide adequate audit coverage.  Of course others offer these services, but they usually come at a premium price which many cannot afford.  SWAP, as a public sector owned not-for-profit company, can offer high quality at very competitive prices (click here for more information). 

For many organisations, change management and business continuity have become huge priorities as they struggle to deliver services with very limited resources.  Many are being forced to take greater risks than ever, but are those increasing risks being properly managed and are they fully understood? SWAP has developed, in conjunction with our partners, a Healthy Organisation audit that can evaluate the state of an organisations well-being and highlight those areas that require priority attention. 

New ways of delivering services creates new opportunities but also much uncertainty.  SWAP is well positioned and equipped to help the organisations we work with to deal with the ever-shifting risks that are emerging.  Why not join them and us and look forward to an assured future!
