Information about ANAO events and seminars including the chief financial officers forum and the audit committee chairs forum.

ANAO chief financial officer forum

The ANAO supports audited entities and their governance arrangements, and we continue to look for ways to improve and expand the communication of audit findings, conclusions and recommendations. One of the ways that the ANAO does this is through the hosting of biannual chief financial officer (CFO) forums.

To facilitate interstate and broader participation, the ANAO web streams CFO forums and the broadcast is hosted on the ANAO website after the event.

The ANAO would like to thank those that have attended past forums. If you have any feedback that you’d like to see incorporated into future forums, please do not hesitate to contact our External Relations team.

Audit committee chairs forum

The audit committee chairs forum is a joint initiative of the Department of Finance and the ANAO and includes the Audit Committee Chairs for Commonwealth entities and is held biannually. Audit committees play an important role in the public sector governance framework, and the forum is an opportunity to share insights from the audit program. The forum also seeks to provide relevant updates and information to assist committees to meet the requirements of the PGPA Act and Rules.

To provide opportunities for interstate chairs to participate, the Auditor-General held a mini-forum in Sydney in February 2018. Future interstate opportunities will be communicated to Audit Committee Chairs. In addition, a communique is published on the ANAO website after each forum that details the matters presented and discussed.

So that we can maintain a master contact list, it would be appreciated if any changes in occupancy of audit committee chair positions were advised to: Please also provide any feedback you would like to see incorporated in future forums.
