The Queensland Audit Office greatly values its relationship with elected members and we aim to ensure they benefit from the assurance services and insights we provide.

In addition to our reports to parliament, we provide support to parliament in a number of ways, including by briefing new members and parliamentary committees, and meeting with ministers and other members of parliament throughout the year. 

Below are some useful materials about our role and how we engage.

Requests for audits

We welcome information on public sector performance and requests for audits from members of the public, elected representatives, entity management, and from other integrity offices. To increase transparency, we publish summaries of the requests we receive from members of state parliament (MPs) and Queensland councillors on our website.

You can find more information on this process in our requests for audits fact sheet. You are welcome to submit a request for audit via the contact us section of our website: www.qao.qld.gov.au/contact-us

View the requests for audits

The topics we plan on auditing can be found in our audit program page.
