Local government refers collectively to administrative authorities over areas that are smaller than a State. The term is used to contrast with offices at national and State level.
As public sector organisations, local governments operate with public funds to provide infrastructure, social support and community development services. There are significant compliance and reporting requirements which must also be met, ranging from thorough record keeping, frequent financial reports, investment registers, ongoing administration and regular financial reviews.
