IPART undertakes an annual audit of Sydney Water’s compliance with its operating licence. The 2019 audit is the fourth audit under the 2015-2020 operating licence.
We audit Sydney Water’s compliance with its operating licence as required by the Sydney Water Act 1994. We sought stakeholder views on Sydney Water’s performance during the 2019 period (1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019).
IPART initiates the operational audits annually. We sought stakeholder input into Sydney Water’s overall compliance with its licence to determine the audit scope.
Our audit interviews were held in September 2019.
We provided the audit report to the Minister for Water, Property and Housing in December 2019.
Our next audit of Sydney Water's operating licence will commence in mid-2020.
