Audit Program

The Audit Office has a strong desire to engage effectively with all our external stakeholders to ensure we deliver audits that are of a high quality and lead to improved public sector reporting and performance.

Our Audit Program, highlighted by the Annual Work Program 2018-19 explains what we intend to focus on, and what we intend to cover in the next two years. It gives parliament, the entities we audit and the broader community some certainty over future topics and the timing of our reports.

The Annual Work Program, provides a summary of all audits to be conducted within the proposed time period as well as detailed information on the areas of focus based on each of the NSW government clusters. We invite feedback from all stakeholders on this program, the process we have adopted and our decisions.

The Auditor-General for New South Wales reserves the right to add new audits or make changes to the timing of planned audits if circumstances change or if requests are received for an audit.
