Local Government

Councils don’t operate by remote control: the concerns of their constituents are immediate and tangible. The cornerstone to every council’s operations is balancing the delicate nexus between risk and control in delivery of grass root services. Effective delivery of a council’s core services must be underpinned by the management of a unique financial, organisational and technology life cycle.

At Deloitte we understand the operating environment of a council, and financial and legislative reporting requirements. Our team has partnered with councils around Australia to provide practical solutions. For case studies of projects undertaken - and benefits realised - please contact our team.
