Volume Twelve 2015 Part One Trade & Investment and TAFE


Serious system limitations prevented TAFE NSW from providing sufficient and appropriate evidence to support recorded student revenue of $477 million, student receivables and accrued income of $47.6 million and unearned revenue of $398 million.
These limitations resulted in: 

  • a qualified audit opinion being issued for TAFE NSW;
  • delays in enrolling students;
  • inability to fully reconcile cash balances;
  • difficulties in reconciling student enrolments with revenues recorded in the financial statements;
  • large volumes of manual processing.
