IPART undertakes an annual audit of Sydney Water’s compliance with its operating licence. The 2020 audit was the first audit under the 2019-2023 operating licence.
We audited 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 2020 audit period (1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020).
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 2020.
We provided our 2020 audit report to the Minister Water, Property and Housing in March 2021. We require Sydney Water to report on its progress in implementing the audit recommendations by 31 May 2021.
