Auditing for Parliament


Reporting to Parliament

The Audit Act 1995 requires the Auditor‑General to report to the Legislative Assembly at least once each year. Established practice has been for reports to be submitted twice each year. Each report (available online on the publications page) may contain findings from financial statement audits, agency compliance audits, information technology audits, controls and compliance audits, performance management system audits and findings from any special reviews conducted. Where there are delays in Agencies or Entities completing financial statements and resultant delays occur in the subsequent audit, it is sometimes necessary to comment on these activities in the next report. Results of any reviews of referred information under the Public Information Act 2010 are included when the reviews are concluded. The approximate timing and the contents of these reports are: The Auditor‑General is also requested to appear before the Public Accounts Committee from time to time, often to discuss in more detail findings related to specific audits reported to the Legislative Assembly.

We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the traditional Owners, Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connection to land, seas and community.
We pay our respects to their cultures, and to their Elders past and present.
