This audit would assess whether projects that received grant funding under the 20 Million Trees Program have been effectively delivered and the funding appropriately acquitted.

Auditor-General Report No. 4 2016–17 Award of Funding under the 20 Million Trees Programme, examined the award of funding under the program. The published program guidelines required that projects with a budget of $60,000 or greater were required to have a timeframe of between 18 months and three years; and projects with a budget of less than $60,000 were required to be completed within 18 months. Delivery of funded projects should be substantially completed when this audit is undertaken.
