The certifications assist the City in increased productivity, improved efficiency to reduce waste, less rework and continual improvement.
The City's Quality Certification means that core processes are recognised internationally as being quality assured. The Quality Management System is based on seven principles:
- Customer focus
- Engagement of people
- Process approach
- Evidence-based decision making
- Relationship management
The City sought certification to ensure that its processes achieve the right outcomes for the community and to improve consistency in these outcomes.
