The objective of this audit is to assess whether the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities has designed and implemented appropriate governance and administration arrangements for the transition and delivery of sustainable reforms to services on Norfolk Island.
The audit would examine whether the negotiations with the successful tenderer for delivering the OneSKY Australia program resulted in the timely finalisation of contractual arrangements that represent value for money.
The civil air traffic management system operated by Airservices Australia (Airservices) and the separate system operated by the Department of Defence (Defence) for military air traffic are both due to reach the end of their economic lives in the latter part of the current decade. Under the OneSKY Australia program, Airservices is the lead agency for the joint procurement of a civil–military air traffic management system. The system is intended to be delivered through contracts between Airservices and the successful tenderer, with a separate agreement being established between Airservices and Defence for the on-supply of services and goods. Following a request-for-tender process, in February 2015 it was announced that an advanced work contracting arrangement would be entered into with Thales Australia, as a next step for the delivery of the OneSKY initiative.
The ANAO originally intended to examine the contractual arrangements as part of an earlier audit of the OneSKY tender process (Auditor-General Report No. 46 of 2016–17, Conduct of the OneSKY Tender). Due to significant delays with contract negotiations, this was not possible. An audit of the contractual arrangements was subsequently requested by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit. Contract negotiations concluded with an executed $1.2 billion contract, which was signed in February 2018.
The objective of this audit was to examine the extent to which the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development, now the Department of Home Affairs (the Department) has implemented the recommendations made by the ANAO in Audit Report #5 2016–17, Passenger Security Screening at Domestic Airports.
The objective of the audit was to assess whether the contractual arrangements that have been put in place for the delivery of the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal (MIT) will provide value for money and achieve the Australian Government’s policy objectives for the project.
The objective of this audit was to assess whether the OneSKY tender was conducted so as to provide value with public resources and achieve required timeframes for the effective replacement of the existing air traffic management platforms.
