Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government
Tthe Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government (ACELG) was hosted by the UTS Centre for Local Government (CLG) from 2009 to 2015 as part of a consortium that included the Commonwealth Government, University of Canberra, the Australia and New Zealand School of Government, Local Government Managers Australia, the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia, and program partners Charles Darwin University and Edith Cowan University. ACELG enjoyed significant success in advancing best practice in local government and encouraging the adoption of innovative practices and solutions. At the end of 2015 the Centre for Excellence came to a close, although a small number of ACELG projects were implemented throughout 2016 and 2017. ACELG project outcomes, relevant information and toolkits are hosted by UTS.
