The accounts of the Council are audited by an auditor appointed annually by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, in consultation with the Auditor-General. The audited financial report will be presented to the Minister as well as the Parliament. NCSS also has an Audit Committee that is responsible for internal control, statutory audit, and financial reporting.

NCSS has a standards framework to measure the outcomes and impact of the programmes that are supported by Community Chest. This framework looks at:

  1. Performance and Standards

  2. Quality Assurance

  3. Capability

Through government matching, from FY15 to FY21, regular giving will unlock a dollar-for-dollar matching. The matched amount from the government will be used to build the capability of the Community Chest supported social service agencies, creating a double impact through regular giving.
