    The objective of the audit is to assess the effectiveness of the ATO's administration of debt collection. Micro-business debt is a particular focus of attention. The three key areas examined are:

    • strategies–especially the ATO's initiatives trialled in 2006;
    • infrastructure–the IT systems, people, policy and processes and risk management framework supporting the collection of debt; and
    • management and governance–planning, monitoring and reporting mechanisms and liaison with stakeholders.

    The ANAO focused on the work of the campaigns area within the Debt Line, which has collection responsibility for 90 per cent of collectable debt cases and responsibility for other key, centralised functions such as reporting, quality assurance review, consistency and best practice, and the debt collection initiatives.
