The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
I am the Auditor-General’s appointed auditor for Waimakariri District Council (the Council). Section 93C of the Local Government Act 2002 (the Act) requires an audit report on the Council’s consultation document. We have done the work for this report using the staff and resources of Audit New Zealand. We completed our report on 20 February 2018.
In my opinion:
Basis of opinion
We carried out our work in accordance with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (New Zealand) 3000 (Revised): Assurance Engagements Other Than Audits or Reviews of Historical Financial Information. In meeting the requirements of this standard, we took into account particular elements of the Auditor-General’s Auditing Standards and the International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3400: The Examination of ProspectiveFinancial Information that were consistent with those requirements.
We assessed the evidence the Council has to support the information and disclosures in the consultation document. To select appropriate procedures, we assessed the risk of material misstatement and the Council’s systems and processes applying to the preparation of the consultation document.
We did not evaluate the security and controls over the publication of the consultation document.
Responsibilities of the Council and auditor
The Council is responsible for:
I am responsible for reporting on the consultation document, as required by section 93C of the Act. I do not express an opinion on the merits of any policy content of the consultation document.
In addition to this report on the Council’s consultation document and all legally required external audits, we have provided an assurance report on certain matters in respect of the Council’s Debenture Trust Deed. These assignments are compatible with those independence requirements. Other than these assignments, we have no relationship with or interests in the Council.
