In our first Assurance Review, we looked at how public entities monitored and responded to performance audit recommendations made by VAGO between 2015-16 and 2017-18.
Nothing has come to our attention to indicate that overall, agencies are not effectively implementing past performance audit recommendations.
Most agencies report having governance arrangements that allow their senior management and audit committees to monitor progress in implementing our audit recommendations.
The effectiveness of these governance arrangements has enabled agencies to report that most of our recommendations are complete. However, they do not always complete recommendations as quickly as intended or needed. All agencies can work to improve this.
A minority of agencies do not provide necessary progress reports on audit recommendations to their audit committees or give their audit committees a role in assessing when recommendations are satisfactorily addressed. This prevents those committees from fulfilling their legislated oversight function.
