This report examined the publication of financial statements and audit reports in the hardcopy and website forms of the annual reports of 117 Commonwealth reporting entities. The audit objective was to determine whether the published financial statements and audit reports agreed in all respects with those that had been certified by the chief-executive or governing body (as appropriate) and the Auditor-General or his delegate. In all but two instances, the reporting period covered was the year ended 30 June 2002.
This report, which informs the Parliament on the audits of financial statements of Commonwealth entities for 1995-96, aligns with the Government's policy for timely public reporting of financial information. It provides a summary of the opinions formed on those organisations' financial statements and the matters and recommendations raised. Matters reported relate primarily to issues on internal control structures and information technology.
The objective of this audit is to assess the effectiveness of risk management, data monitoring and public reporting arrangements associated with the Australian Government’s funding of public hospital services under the 2011 National Health Reform Agreement (NHRA).
