Performance Excellence Program
The Local Government Performance Excellence Program has been developed by Local Government Professionals Australia in collaboration with Price Waterhouse Coopers. The purpose of the program is to provide councils in Australia and New Zealand with research findings, trends and meaningful comparisons on local government performance in the areas of corporate leadership, workforce management, finance management, operations management, risk management, asset management and service delivery.
Nambucca Shire Council joined the program in 2017. Participating in this program allows the Council to:
Monitor and manage internal business performance
Identify and prioritise areas of focus for improvement
Facilitate data-driven decision making
Benchmark its performance against other councils
Better communicate with stakeholders
The report for FY17 is based on data collected from 136 councils across New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia and New Zealand. Of these 60 were NSW councils including all Nambucca Shire Council’s MIDROC counterparts being Coffs Harbour City Council, Bellingen Shire Council, Kempsey Shire Council and Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.
