The objective of the performance audit was to assess the administrative effectiveness of DIMA's business entry program against the background of the Business and Temporary Entry program objective, with particular regard to whether:

  • the existing performance management mechanisms and compliance monitoring strategies support the achievement of program outcomes and outputs;
  • the quality of decision-making;
  • business processes facilitate prompt visa decision-making consistent with program objectives; and
  • decision-making support mechanisms promote robust and timely decision-making.
