A+ audit for Auckland City

Auckland City has received an excellent report from Audit New Zealand for the year ended 30 June 2002.

The chairperson of the council’s Assessors and Audit Sub-Committee, Deputy Mayor Councillor David Hay, says the council is delighted with the findings of the annual external audit of Auckland City Council.

The audit involved:
- reviewing the minutes of council and sub-committee meetings
- confirming cash and bank balances, investments and public debt
- reviewing creditors, debtors, taxation, fixed assets, equity commitments, contingent liabilities, cash flows and performance measures
- performing testing over infrastructure assets
- reviewing compliance with significant legislation
- reviewing the financial statements for fair presentation and disclosure

“Audit New Zealand has informed the council that the 2002 audit progressed very well, commenting in particular on the quality and accuracy of council documentation, as well as the management and strength of systems of control within the organisation.”

Audit New Zealand is contracted to perform the audit on behalf of the Office of the Controller and Auditor-General.

“The Chief Executive and his team are to be congratulated for what is an A+ report. As is often the case, a small number of minor issues were identified by the audit and these have either already been or are being addressed,” says the Deputy Mayor.

“This audit report reaffirms that residents and ratepayers can be assured their city is being professionally managed.”

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
