This report provides information regarding the implementation status of audit recommendations contained in various reports issued by the Auditor General to the City’s agencies, boards, commissions and corporations. On an annual basis the Auditor General reviews the implementation status of outstanding audit recommendations and reports the results of the review to Council through Audit Committee.
Since July 1, 2006 the Auditor General has issued various reports containing a total of 190 recommendations. Since that time four 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are no longer relevant as reorganizations and changes in business practices and service levels have rendered them no longer applicable.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, 186 of the 190 recommendations continue to have relevance.
The results of our review indicate that on a combined basis, City agencies, boards, commissions and corporations have implemented 73 per cent or 136 of the 186 recommendations made by the Auditor General from July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2011.
Continued efforts to implement outstanding recommendations will provide additional benefit to the City through cost savings, additional revenue and enhanced service delivery
