An elector can only raise issues and questions about the annuals accounts during the public rights notice period which is about a month, your Council will have set the dates. The issues raised should be sent by the elector to the internal auditor, RFO and external auditor, they will then question the RFO - the electors send them not the Council. It doesn’t need to be discussed at council, it just needs to be noted that an elector raised issues during the period and has notified such and such. The internal auditor and external auditor will then ask questions from the RFO and will expect quick answers, this is done before they write their final report, the issues raised will be included in their final report which is a public document. If the elector has only written to the Council, it is not up to you to forward them on to the external auditor and internal auditor, I would expect an answer within a suitable time, don’t forget if it was an FOI request you only have 20 days so I wouldn’t want to keep them waiting any longer but it depends on what questions they asked. Again this is not discussed at Council the RFO would just note that they have received a request and deal with it. If issues have been raised it will be noted on the internal and external auditors report and it is then up to the Council to put procedures in place to rectify them. If the elector is not happy with the response they should be asked to raise a complaint and then you would have to go down the complaints procedure which is a whole different ball game.
