This audit would examine the effectiveness of management of major multi-year information and communications technology (ICT) projects by selected entities.

Previous performance audits have found that entities have not established appropriate governance and oversight arrangements to support the delivery of project outcomes on time and on budget. In particular, outcomes may be compromised by a lack of competition in tendering processes, scope creep and passive contract management. The scope of this audit would include a selection of key business improvement projects with long-term delivery schedules. The audit would assess the initial scope and benefit proposition, and the effectiveness of entity arrangements to request tenders, manage contracts and maintain value for money following government approval.
