Local government

The Audit Office conducts financial and performance audits of local government entities in New South Wales to:

  • support reforms aimed at strengthening governance and financial oversight in the sector
  • provide greater consistency in the financial reporting and audit process   
  • improve financial management, fiscal responsibility and public accountability.

We work collaboratively with the sector and with accredited audit service providers to add value to local councils and associated entities, and ultimately to citizens.
