Review of council-controlled organisations (CCOs)
He arotake o ngā whakahaere e whakahaerengia ana e te kaunihera (CCO)
We've appointed an independent panel to review how well our CCOs are working.
Why the review is needed
CCOs are separate organisations that are owned by the council and overseen by an independent board of directors.
They were established ten years ago, so we've decided to review the CCO model to ensure it is working for our city and our people in 2020.
To do this, we've appointed an independent panel.
The role of the independent panel
The panel's role is to identify what is working well, what is not working, and how we can improve.
It will provide recommendations to ensure:
- the services CCOs provide are efficient and effective
- their decision-making has satisfactory levels of political oversight, public transparency, and accountability.
CCOs covered by the review
The five CCOs covered by the review are:
- Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED)
- Auckland Transport (AT)
- Panuku Development Auckland
- Regional Facilities Auckland (RFA)
