Providing assurance of local water utility strategic planning
The department’s strategic planning assurance role assesses and reports on whether a local water utility has in place effective, evidence-based strategic planning by achieving the strategic planning outcomes to a reasonable standard.

Strategic planning assurance assessment process
Local water utilities may request an initial assessment of the effectiveness of their strategic planning. To ensure their assurance result remains current, local water utilities participate in an annual ‘check-in’ process with the department. Utilities may also request a re-assessment at any time, to update their assurance assessment result. The department may request an assessment at any time if it becomes aware of significant factors that suggest the local water utility may no longer have in place effective strategic planning.
