The Department of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (formerly the Department of Sustainable Resource Development and the Department of Environment and Water) implemented our recommendation relating to its grant monitoring process—see below.
For outstanding previous recommendations to the organizations that form the Ministry, please see our outstanding recommendations list on page 159.
In our October 2010 Report (no. 15—p. 143), we recommended that the Department of Environment and Water improve its monitoring of compliance with conditions in grant agreements and retain evidence of the review.
Our audit findings
We tested the Department’s monitoring of conditions set in grant agreements and found substantial improvement. Therefore, we conclude this recommendation has been implemented.
