This symbol means that you can contribute to that audit

The ANAO welcomes members of the public contributing information for consideration when conducting performance audits.

Performance audits involve the independent and objective assessment of the administration of an entity or body’s programs, policies, projects or activities. They also examine how well administrative support systems operate.

The ANAO does not have a role in commenting on the merits of government policy but focuses on assessing the efficient and effective implementation of government programs, including the achievement of their intended benefits.

The audits currently open for contribution by members of the public are listed below.

Please note that the citizen's input facility is only active during the fieldwork phase of an audit.
