This report provides information regarding the implementation status of audit recommendations contained in various reports issued by the Auditor General to City Agencies and Corporations. On an annual basis the Auditor General reviews the implementation status of outstanding audit recommendations and reports the results to City Council through the Audit Committee.
Since July 1, 2009 the Auditor General has issued various reports to City Agencies and Corporations containing a total of 174 recommendations. Since that time seven of these recommendations have been identified by the Auditor General as no longer relevant. These recommendations are no longer relevant as reorganizations and changes in business practices and service levels have rendered them no longer applicable. Consequently, 167 of the recommendations continue to have relevance.
The results of our review indicate that on a combined basis, City Agencies and Corporations have implemented 73 per cent or 122 of the applicable recommendations made by the Auditor General from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2014.
Continued efforts to implement outstanding recommendations will provide additional benefit to City Agencies and Corporations through cost savings, additional revenue and enhanced service delivery. TPA – Results of Follow-up of Previous Audit Recommendations 1
