This audit would assess the effectiveness of Treasury’s design and implementation of the Measuring What Matters Statement.

The Australian Government and state and territory governments publish many progress and wellbeing indicators in reports, agreements and dashboards. These publications support decision making and accountability for particular policy areas. Australia does not have a national framework or central set of indicators to complement the existing reporting and track overall progress. In 2023, the Australian Government will release a new stand-alone Measuring What Matters Statement. While drawing on the work of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Framework for Measuring Well-being and Progress, it will be unique to the Australian context.
