Addressing public inquiry recommendations


There are many public inquiries and reviews into the government’s policy decisions and administration every year. Key sources of public inquiries and reviews include parliamentary committees, the Coroner, the Ombudsman, ICAC, the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission and the Auditor-General. Other sources include statutory reviews of legislation, other reviews that the government has elected to make public and, more infrequently, special commissions of inquiry and royal commissions. This audit will assess the effectiveness of processes used by agencies to monitor and implement public inquiry recommendations with a focus on emergency and disaster response.
