Tabled: 9 June 2010

The audit examined how effectively, efficiently and economically irrigation-related programs have been planned and managed to achieve intended outcomes.

The audit examined the planning processes for the Foodbowl Modernisation Project and the Sugarloaf Pipeline, and the planning, project management and project outcomes for the Central Goulburn 1234 Channel Automation Project, Shepparton Irrigation Area Modernisation Project and the Macalister Channel Automation Project.

The audit found that Victorian Government decisions to invest around $2 billion in irrigation efficiency and related projects between 2004 and 2007 were poorly informed, which in some cases has affected the achievement of outcomes. Whether these projects represent the best solution to achieve the government’s policy objectives of saving water and securing Victoria’s water, remains unclear.
