The Queensland Audit Office
The Queensland Audit Office is the independent auditor of the Queensland public sector.
We work on your behalf – conducting financial and performance audits to give you confidence about the reliability of public sector financial statements, and to provide you with expert advice about public sector performance. Our role provides us with access to financial and performance information across the entire public sector, enabling us to develop unique insights. Through our audit work, we make recommendations that promote accountability and transparency in government, and improvements in service efficiency and effectiveness.
Our vision is for better public services for Queenslanders. We strive to use our unique position and mandate to work with public sector entities to achieve this vision.
We produce reports that contain the results of our financial audits and performance audits.
Reports on the results of our financial audits provide information beyond the individual audit opinions about the key themes impacting sectors as well as factors impacting the financial sustainability of the Queensland Government.
Reports on the results of our performance audits focus on topics of importance to Queensland, examining whether government services have been delivered in a way that is efficient, effective and complying with relevant requirements.
These reports are tabled in parliament and are accessible to all members of the public.

Audits in progress
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.
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 performance and financial audits in parliament and also make them available on the reports to parliament section of this site.
