This audit would assess the progress made by selected entities in implementing recommendations, and achieving intended benefits, from the 2015 Independent Review of Whole-of-Government Internal Regulation (the Belcher review).

The Secretaries Board is overseeing implementation of the 134 agreed recommendations from the Belcher review, while entities are responsible for implementing relevant recommendations. Many of the review’s ‘whole-of-system’ recommendations are directed at four main entities: the Department of Finance; the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet; the Australian Public Service Commission; and the Attorney-General’s Department.
