IPART undertakes an annual audit of Water NSW’s compliance with its operating licence. The 2020 audit was the third audit under the 2017-2022 operating licence.
We audited Water NSW’s compliance with its operating licence as required by the Water NSW Act 2014. We sought stakeholder views on Water NSW’s performance during the 2020 audit period (31 August 2019 to 31 August 2020).
IPART initiates the operational audits annually. We sought stakeholder input into Water NSW’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 Water NSW to report on its progress in implementing the audit recommendations by 7 June 2021.
