Significant Audit Finding in 2018/19 - Asset Sustainability Ratio 

The City’s auditor, Moore Stephens, identified a significant audit finding - non-compliance with the Asset Sustainability Ratio, in the City’s external audit for the year ended 30 June 2019:

"The Asset Sustainability Ratio has been below the DLGSC standard for all three years reported in the annual financial report.”

To City's response to the significant audit finding is as follows:

  • The City has prepared a Asset Sustainability Ratio Action Plan to address this.
  • The Plan was considered by the Audit Committee at its 3 March 2020 Meeting (Item 5.2) and adopted by Council at its 17 March 2020 meeting (Item 11.12) (here).
  • In accordance with section 7.12A of the Local Government Act 1995 a copy of the Plan has been provided to the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, along with the relevant Audit Committee and Council minutes (see below).
