Audit and Assessment Report

Each year the Local Government Auditor has to report whether each council has discharged its duties in relation to improvement planning, the publication of improvement information and the extent to which each council has acted in accordance with the Department’s Guidance.   The Local Government Auditor also has to assess annually whether a council is likely to make the required arrangements to secure continuous improvement in that year. This is called the “improvement assessment”. 

The Local Government Auditor reviewed the Improvement Plan and publication of improvement information and the Annual Report for 2017/18 and as a result proposed an unqualified audit and assessment opinion.  No statutory recommendations would be made to the Department and found there was no requirement for a special inspection.
