Dear Dr Stone
Potential audit of the Murray-Darling Basin Authority
Thank you for your letter of 7 September 2015 regarding the Murray-Darling Basin Authority. As you have outlined in your letter, the Authority’s implementation of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan has been included as a potential audit in the Australian National Audit Office’s (ANAO) Audit Work Program July 2015.
As you will appreciate, the ANAO seeks to achieve a spread of topics across the public sector and the selection and timing of audits is dependent on competing audit priorities. However, I note your concerns about the Authority’s processes and procedures in implementing the Basin Plan and will consider them when determining the priority and timing of the potential audit.
