The Auditor General for Wales has today published a new report on Neath Port Talbot Council looking at how well the Council is improving its services.
The Annual Improvement Report has been prepared by the Wales Audit Office (WAO) on behalf of the Auditor General for Wales. It asks if the Council is:
• well managed
• serving people well
• supporting people in need
• helping people to develop
• helping create a safe, prosperous, pleasant place to live, and
• knows what it needs to do to improve
The report focuses on the Council's own priorities for improvement, setting out what the Council needs to do to improve its services. Each year the WAO is set to produce a report looking into what progress the Council has made.
The WAO wants to find out what you think of the services the Council is providing in your area and will be giving you an opportunity to comment in the future.
Notes to Editors:
• The report has been prepared by the Wales Audit Office on behalf of the Auditor General for Wales as required by the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009. The Auditor General for Wales assesses the compliance of Welsh improvement authorities (county councils, county borough councils, national park authorities and fire and rescue authorities) with the improvement requirements of Part 1 of the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009.
• The Wales Audit Office is independent of government and is responsible for the annual audit of some £20 billion of annual public expenditure.
• Its mission is to promote improvement, so that people in Wales benefit from accountable, well-managed public services that offer the best possible value for money. It is also committed to identify and spreading good practice across the Welsh public sector.
