According to the 2018 Auditor-General’s Report to Parliament on Health, the value of assets held by NSW Health increased from $18.6 billion at 30 June 2017 to $20.1 billion at 30 June 2018. Most of this increase is attributed to capital expenditure on new facilities, upgrades and redevelopments. The same report also notes that two capital projects were completed on time and under budget in the same financial year. Completion dates were revised for ten other projects and budgets revised for six projects. This audit will consider:
- the effectiveness of processes around capital works program planning/facility design or business cases for the capital works program
- the use of PPPs and in-house delivery methods.
