Welcome to Barcud Shared Services
Barcud Shared Services was created in 2012 by a group of four Welsh large scale voluntary transfer (LSVT) housing organisations seeking a more tailored, cost effective and value adding Internal Audit service than they had previously received. The service is hosted by Valleys to Coast Housing, based in Bridgend, and is overseen by a Consortium Committee, made up of nominated individuals from each of the organisations. It is a unique approach to Internal Audit.
The service is named Barcud, which comes from the Welsh phrase ‘Cadw Llygad Barcud’, which literally means ‘to keep a Kite’s eye’. The English equivalent would be to watch like a hawk.
When considering an internal audit provider, organisations should consider:
Barcud Shared Services has staff qualified in internal audit, information systems auditing, accountancy and project management and employs the latest automated audit management systems, data analytics software and robust quality controls in line with international standards to ensure the service provided is consistent, high quality and meets each member organisation’s needs.
We use a similar methodology as that employed by leading professional services firms; however this is combined with a local, knowledgeable approach to ensure greatest value is achieved for our clients. Please see our Approach page for more information.
