Audits in progress

You are here

This section is about performance audits that are currently in progress and our reports to parliament on the results of our financial audits.

When delivering a performance audit, it goes through a number of stages—planning, conduct and reporting. During the conduct stage, we welcome information from members of the public which can be made via a submission on the contact us section of our website, or via the table below.

As performance audits are completed, we produce a report which is tabled in parliament and made available on the reports to parliament section of this site.

Our performance audit reports contain recommendations on how to improve the public sector’s delivery of services. Each year we follow-up on one of the performance audits previously tabled in parliament to check entities’ progress in implementing our recommendations.

In addition to the performance audit program, we have a financial audit program that progressively audits the financial statements of over 500 public sector entities each year.  We table reports on the results of these audits grouped by the following sectors:

  • energy
  • transport
  • water
  • health
  • Queensland state government entities (including the whole-of-government statements)
  • local government
  • education.

These reports are available on the 'reports to parliament' section of this site when they are tabled in parliament.
