Type: Our role and services

We make recommendations in our reports to parliament to help entities improve the services they deliver, and so they can learn from the better practices of others. The primary responsibility for implementing our recommendations (where accepted) rests with the relevant entity we have made the recommendations to via our reports to parliament.

QAO uses an online self-assessment system (the system) that allows entities to self-assess their progress in implementing our recommendations, so we can track their progress and status.

This fact sheet discusses our approach and the system, including how the self-assessment process works, how we select future follow-up audits, and our communication with entities. 

See our interactive data dashboard to search by area of interest or responsibility and understand how entities self-assessed their progress in implementing the recommendations we make in our reports to parliament.
