Standards and Audit

The current Audit Toolkit for MI services is the culmination of much work and lengthy deliberation. .

There is an opportunity to show progression in terms of service delivery and to highlight areas of good practice which is a primary aim of the audit process. Recommendations arising from an audit can only serve to ensure standards are maintained across the UKMi network and should not be viewed as negative or critical—it is not like a driving test, there is no pass or fail..

This toolkit will be amended and updated in the light of comments and feedback from those who deliver, manage, use, audit or commission the service. Please email any comments to

* Note. Depending on the version of Excel being used, there may be technical difficulties opening the embedded spreadsheets in the audit toolkit document. The spreadsheets have therefore also been created as separate documents which can be inserted or attached as appropriate to the final report.
