We prepare and table an annual plan before 30 June each year that sets out our work program and the resources we need to deliver the program. The annual plan is a key accountability mechanism that gives Parliament, the public sector and the Victorian community the opportunity to assess our goals and understand our audit priorities.
From the Annual Plan 2017–18 onwards, we have adopted a rolling three-year planning cycle for our performance audit work program. This forecast horizon provides Parliament, the public sector and the Victorian community with foresight of our short to medium-term goals and priorities. It also provides us with opportunities to undertake early engagement with our stakeholders and allows audited agencies to make necessary preparations for scheduled audits well in advance.
