This audit series would assess the effectiveness of governance arrangements in selected entities for monitoring and implementing agreed Australian National Audit Office (ANAO) performance audit and parliamentary committee recommendations.

In their reports, the ANAO and parliamentary committees identify areas where administrative improvements can be made and make recommendations to improve the delivery of outcomes. Once entities have agreed to implement performance audit recommendations — or in the case of parliamentary committee reports, the Australian Government has committed to the implementation of recommendations — timely implementation in line with the intended outcome of the recommendations is important in achieving the full benefit of the recommendations.
