Summary

The Auditor General follows up on her reports to review management actions taken to implement the recommendations and to ensure that intended benefits are being achieved.

 

At the beginning of this follow-up cycle in July 2023, management reported 294 recommendations as fully implemented or no longer applicable. We selected 128 across multiple City divisions and 63 Toronto Transit Commission recommendations to review in this follow-up cycle. The number of high priority recommendations included were 88 for the City and 44 for Toronto Transit Commission. The assessments for the 191 recommendations concluded that 136 are fully implemented, 15 are no longer applicable, and 40 are not fully implemented.    

 

Since 1999 to April 30, 2024, the Auditor General has verified 86 per cent of the 3,534 recommendations as fully implemented or no longer applicable.

 

The detailed results from this follow-up review are discussed in Attachment 1.
