48 2021-22 Strategic Programs Strategic Pillar Achievement Always Safe (Continued) External Audit for the Utilities Commission Power and Water has been granted a licence to supply water and sewerage services by the Utilities Commission under the Water Supply and Sewerage Services Act (2000). A condition of this licence is that the licensee must commission an independent auditor to undertake an audit of all or part of the operations authorised by the licence each financial year. In the 2021-22 financial year, Power and Water engaged an external auditor to review processes and controls in place to manage water supply and sewerage services to customers. The report concluded that nothing had come to the auditors attention, with the exception of some minor findings, that caused the auditors to believe that the Corporation was not in compliance with the requirements of the Water Supply Services Licence (Urban) or the Sewerage Supply Services Licence (Urban). A number of minor non-compliances were noted by the auditor. Power and Water has committed to addressing all minor non-compliances in the 2022-23 financial year. Public Safety Asset Assurance Projects related to public safety feature prominently in the Transmission and Distribution Planning Report (TDAPR) highlighting this as a key focus. Overhead service inspection program continues in the Darwin and Katherine Regions. Service replacement program is ongoing in the Darwin Region. The cable replacement program continues with $1.4 million of civil works issued to contractors on the accelerated program and 4.1 kilometres of cable replaced to the end of June 2022.
