IPART undertakes an annual audit of Sydney Water’s compliance with its operating licence. The 2021 audit was the second 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 2021 audit period (1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021).
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 2021.
We provided our 2020-21 audit report to the Minister for Lands and Water in February 2022. We require Sydney Water to report on its progress in implementing the audit recommendations by 31 May 2021.
