Review of council-controlled organisations (CCOs)
We appointed an independent panel to review how well our CCOs were working.
Report of independent panelThe panel has completed its review.
Why the review was 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. The review of CCO model was to ensure it was working for our city and our people in 2020.
Implementing the review
The council group is working collaboratively to carry out the recommendations of the CCO review.
Regular updates on progress are provided to the CCO Oversight Committee.
The role of the independent panel
The panel's role was to identify what was working well, what was not working, and how to improve.
It provided recommendations to ensure:
- the services CCOs provide are efficient and effective
