OLG have released a circular advising councils and joint organisations of updates to Annual Report and Performance Statement checklists for implementation.
WHAT’S NEW OR CHANGING
• The annual report checklist for councils has been updated to include the reporting requirement for councillor professional development training.
• An annual performance statement checklist has been drafted for joint organisations.
The annual report and annual performance statement checklists are available on the NSW OLG website.
WHAT COUNCILS AND JOINT ORGANISATIONS NEED TO DO
Councils can use the annual report checklist and joint organisations can use the annual performance statement checklist to ensure that all the information required under the Local Government Act 1993 (the Act), the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 and other relevant legislation and guidelines is in their annual report and annual performance statement.
While joint organisations are not required to produce an annual performance statement for the first year of operations, they may elect to and they will need to get prepared for future reporting.
