Local governments – councils – are responsible for maintaining and renewing an asset portfolio of around $112 billion, which they use to deliver community services.

Audit Objective

This audit will assess if councils are effectively managing their infrastructure assets to maximise service potential, while minimising the total cost of owning these assets. The audit may consider whether the state government provides councils with appropriate guidance, advice, and templates to use.
