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 how the framework for preparing the state budget supports the government’s identified fiscal principles and the objectives and measures identified in key economic plans. It may also consider how Queensland Treasury develops key forecasts included in the budget.
