Tabled: 28 July 2010

This report informs Parliament about internal control issues arising from our interim financial audit of the 11 portfolio departments and recommends improvement in their internal controls.

Weaknesses identified in the information technology (IT) controls at portfolio departments should be addressed, particularly the oversight of outsourced IT providers, system wide security and aspects around the protection of personal information.

Controls over the identification, declaration and management of conflicts of interest should also be strengthened.

While overall we found that portfolio departments have adequate procurement policies, improvements to contract recording and controls over payments are required.
