Contractor Agents


From time to time, the Auditor-General contracts in financial attest audit services for certain agencies.  Tenders are sought from firms on the Audit Office’s register of approved service providers.

Registering as an Approved Service Provider


Audit firms wishing to be included on the register of approved service providers are required to provide the Audit Office with a Statement of Qualifications and Experience (SOQ).  SOQs are assessed and evaluated by the Audit Office.  Firms deemed suitable to undertake audits as contract audit agents will be included on the register of approved service providers.

Queries or comments should be directed to Steven Martin (Assistant Auditor-General) on 02 9275 7158.
