Regional assistance programs

The NSW Government commits substantial resources to regional assistance programs that broadly target:

  • infrastructure
  • jobs
  • individuals and small businesses
  • community amenity.

The NSW Government has committed to providing 30 per cent of the funds raised through the sale and lease of government assets to infrastructure in regional areas. At 30 June 2016, $1.7 billion had been committed for this purpose, with a further $6 billion expected in the future.

This audit may examine how well regional assistance programs are being targeted and managed.

Restrictions to accessible and integrated transport infrastructure can limit the participation of a person with a disability to work, education or other community and economic activities and opportunities.  This audit may examine how well NSW public transport agencies are ensuring efficient and effective transport services are available to people with a disability.


Transport data analytics for decision making

Transport for NSW collects a number of sources of data on customers and its network to inform planning and decision making. For example, the opal card system offers information on the actual travel patterns of customers.  This audit may examine whether Opal card ticketing data is complete and accurate and how the transport agencies are using this, and other information for planning and service delivery improvements.
