When used effectively, delegations can help improve council performance, deliver stronger customer service outcomes and minimise the number of issues that may give rise to conflicts of interest
The Local Government Act 2009 allows powers to be delegated from a council to the CEO, and from the CEO to staff and external contractors. For this process to be effective, your council needs to fully understand what can be achieved within the legislation.
LGAQ Total Solutions' comprehensive delegations service (or any part thereof) can ensure your processes are efficient and provide the compliance certainty needed in this important area of council business.
At your office
While we are onsite, our experienced and expert trainers will work with your mayor, councillors and senior staff in a collaborative workshop environment to jointly:
assess which legislation is most relevant for you
determine which delegations are most appropriate and necessary, and review existing delegations
commence the process of populating the delegations register and provide guidance for maintaining it as legislation changes
Your leadership team will gain the ability to complete a consolidated, fully compliant and contemporary register of delegations and establish management processes to ensure it remains up to date and relevant.
Once completed, we can (if required) review your register and return it to Council for validation and adoption.
