WORKING WITH LOCAL GOVERNMENTS AND STAKEHOLDERS
The AGLG works with local governments on an ongoing basis – not just while conducting performance audits. We meet with as many local governments and stakeholders as possible throughout the year to better understand local government interests, concerns, goals, strategies and risks.
Examples of ways we work with local governments include:
- Meeting with local governments – We meet with local governments, area associations and organizations that represent local governments to share the work of the office and gather input and feedback.
- Meeting with stakeholders who have an interest in local government – we meet with various stakeholder groups such as BC Chamber of Commerce
- Attending events – You’ll see us represented at events such as the annual UBCM Convention, connecting with local governments and building strong ongoing relationships.
- Highlighting best practices – We are always looking to identify and share best practices we find in local governments across the province or in other jurisdictions through our Perspectives Series booklets
- Audit planning consultation – In the process of our audit planning, we consult with local governments and stakeholders so that they can help us identify audit topics that are relevant and appropriate for local governments. This process involves various methods of soliciting feedback from local governments and stakeholders.
