This report presents the results of the interim phase of the 2006–07 financial statement audits of all portfolio departments and other major General Government Sector (GGS) agencies that collectively represent 95 per cent of total GGS revenues and expenses.
The focus of this report is on the year end results of the financial statement audits of all general purpose reporting entities for the 2005–06 financial year. Financial management issues (where relevant) arising out of the audits and their relationship to internal control structures are also included in this report.
The report summarises audit findings relating to entity internal control structures arising out of the interim financial statement audits of 21 Major Commonwealth entities for the year ending 30 June 2003. The interim audit examinations seek to update the ANAO's assessment of the internal control environment of entities reviewed, so as to determine whether reliance can be placed on those control structures to produce complete, accurate and valid information for financial reporting purposes. In addition this year's report provides observations on some key strategic issues and influences which are, or will be in the future, likely to affect the overall financial framework in the public sector
