Snapshots of the timeliness of reporting

Snapshots of the timeliness of reporting

In late November, we wrote to the Finance and Expenditure Committee, providing an update on our 2015 report about the timeliness of reporting by public organisations during 2013/14. You can read the full letter on our website.

Overall, we observed that during 2016/17 more public entities were reporting on time (or early), and fewer public entities not reporting on time, than was the case in 2013/14. The improvement in timeliness of reporting by schools is the main reason for the overall improvement. Administering bodies, reserve boards, and cemetery trustees continue to not report in a timely manner. Also, there are a few categories of entities where timeliness has deteriorated.

Request to inquire into Mudtopia

Our Office received a request to inquire into Rotorua Lakes Council’s financial management, accountability, and governance of the Mudtopia event. After careful consideration, we have decided not to conduct a formal inquiry or forensic audit. Our reasons are detailed in a letter to the Council, which has been published on our website.
