When we audit the performance of public sector agencies, we often identify opportunities for them to improve how they work. We make recommendations to help them address the risks and the root causes of any poor performance.
However, agencies are not legislatively required to accept, complete or publicly report on our recommendations.
The Auditor‐General provides independent assurance to the Parliament of Victoria and the Victorian community on the performance of the state and local government public sectors. As part of this limited assurance review, we ask agencies to update us on their implementation of our performance engagement recommendations each year. This provides transparency on government activities where no legislative requirement exists.
We consulted with the audited agencies and considered their views when reaching our conclusions. The agencies’ responses are in Appendix A.
Are agencies accepting our recommendations?
