This audit would assess the effectiveness of NBN Co Limited’s (NBN Co’s) strategies to manage its transition from building to operating the national broadband network (NBN).

Construction of the NBN is scheduled for completion by June 2020, followed by a further 18-month timeframe for completing the migration from legacy infrastructure to the NBN. As at 30 June 2018, approximately 75 per cent of NBN construction was complete.

The transition of its operating model from network construction to one focusing on ongoing network operations was identified as a key risk in NBN Co’s Corporate Plan 2019–22. The audit would examine the extent to which NBN Co has established and implemented measures to address this risk.
