Summary

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 of the review to City Council through Audit Committee.

 

Since July 1, 2007 the Auditor General has issued various reports to City Agencies and Corporations containing a total of 173 recommendations.  Since that time six 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are no longer relevant as reorganizations and changes in business practices and service levels have rendered them no longer applicable.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 173 recommendations continue to have relevance.

 

The results of our review indicate that on a combined basis, City agencies and corporations have implemented 71 per cent or 118 of the 167 recommendations made by the Auditor General from July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2012.

 

Continued efforts to implement outstanding recommendations will provide additional benefit to the City through cost savings, additional revenue and enhanced service delivery.
