What’s this about?

In 2016, the Local Government Act 1993 was amended to require councils to appoint an ARIC. The Office of Local Government (OLG) has since been working with the local government sector and other key stakeholders to develop the regulatory framework that will support the operation of ARICs and the establishment of a risk management and internal audit function in each council. 

OLG is seeking your views on the draft Guidelines for Risk Management and Internal Audit for local councils in NSW prior to finalising them. 

The new regulatory framework will commence on 4 June 2022.
