In order to provide additional useful tools and advice to a wide range of local governments, we also publish AGLG Perspectives booklets. We intend these booklets to be relevant to many local governments and others interested in local government affairs. They build from what is included in our performance audit reports to include information of much broader applicability.

We generally create an AGLG Perspectives booklet once we have undertaken a number of audits in a particular subject area. In addition to information we gathered in the course of conducting these audits, we also look to best practices elsewhere in preparing AGLG Perspectives booklets and consult with experts in the field as appropriate.
