This audit would assess the effectiveness of the Department of Defence’s (Defence’s) management of probity in the procurement of ICT products and services.

Probity is the set of principles and processes that promote the transparency, fairness, defensibility and legality of a competitive process. Probity provides a level of assurance that a procurement was conducted in a manner that is fair and ethical.

Auditor-General Report No. 1 2021–22 Defence’s Administration of Enabling Services — Enterprise Resource Planning Program: Tranche 1 identified shortcomings in, and made one recommendation to improve, Defence’s management of probity for that program.

This audit would assess the effectiveness of Defence’s framework for managing probity risks in the procurement of ICT products and services, including any Chief Information Officer Group-specific arrangements.

The objective of the audit was to assess whether entities properly accounted for software assets, and adopted an integrated planning approach to inform software asset investment decisions.

The main focus of the audit was on whether entities accounted for software costs in accordance with relevant accounting standards and the FMOs, paying particular attention to the standard elements of an internal control framework and accounting practices. In addition, in the context of software asset planning, the audit considered whether entities assessed the risks associated with software assets, used life-cycle costing approaches, and aligned ICT and capital management plans, to inform decision-making on software asset investments.
