What is an Operational Review?

An operational review is an assessment performed by an objective, independent 3rd party (often the municipalities’ auditor) that highlights observations and opportunities for modernization, operational efficiencies and organizational effectiveness based upon research, stakeholder consultation, organization design exercises and a comparison of the City to other municipalities. It is not an audit.

In May 2019, the Provincial government established the Audit and Accountability Fund for large urban municipalities and district school boards in order to find efficiencies, save taxpayer dollars and focus spending on community programs and services.
