Eke Panuku, Tātaki Auckland Unlimited and Watercare Statements of Intent amendment to forecast financial statements

File No.: CP2024/01040

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To amend the 2023-2026 Eke Panuku, Tātaki, and Watercare Statements of Intent (SOIs) to include forecast financial statements.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In 2019, an amendment to the Local Government Act 2002 (the Act) required additional financial information to be included in the SOI of council-controlled organisations (CCOs). In addition to the forecast income statement, SOI should include a balance sheet, statement of cash flow, and statement of movements in equity.

3.       The CCO Direction and Oversight Committee approved the Eke Panuku, Tātaki, and Watercare 2023-2026 SOIs in August last year [CDOCC/2023/31]. Audit New Zealand’s auditors raised the issue of non-compliance in late-2023 for Eke Panuku and Tātaki.

4.       For consistency, a group approach has been adopted to ensure they are not in breach of the Act. The Transport and Infrastructure Committee last month approved amendments to the Auckland Transport 2023-2026 SOI to include the abovementioned financial statements [TICCC/2024/13].

5.       The Board of Eke Panuku has approved the required amendments to the Eke Panuku SOI, provided as Attachment A (refer pages 36-43).

6.       The Board of Tātaki has approved the required amendments to the Tātaki SOI, provided as Attachment B (refer pages 1-8, only the amendment has been provided).

7.       The Board of Watercare has approved the required amendments to the Watercare SOI, provided as Attachment C (refer pages 26-33).

8.       These modifications do not make any substantive change to the SOI. Approval of these modifications is recommended to comply with the requirements of the Act.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Council Controlled Organisation Direction and Oversight Committee:

a)      whakaae / approve the amended Eke Panuku Development Auckland Statement of Intent 2023-2026 to include the provided financial statements

b)      whakaae / approve the amended Tātaki Auckland Unlimited Statement of Intent 2023-2026 to include the provided financial statements

c)      whakaae / approve the amended Watercare Services Statement of Intent 2023-2026 to include the provided financial statements.
