Contracting out local authority regulatory functions

November 1999, ISBN 0 477 02865 9.

We have structured this report in two sections:

  • a good practice guide, which we hope will be useful to (and used by) those local authorities that are thinking about contracting out some or all of their regulatory functions; and
  • a commentary on how Queenstown went about it, some of the inherent risks involved and how they were dealt with, and lessons for others to learn from.
