Each year the government prepares a state budget identifying estimated revenues and expenses over the next 4 years. The budget also outlines how the government’s fiscal objectives and strategies will support key initiatives and longer‑term objectives identified in key documents such as the Savings and Debt Plan and the $62 billion Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan.

Audit Objective

This audit will examine if the state budget process is effectively designed and managed by Queensland Treasury and the Department of the Premier and Cabinet to support the government’s identified fiscal principles and objectives.
