Queensland state government: 2015–16 results of financial audits (Report 8: 2016–17)

Education and Housing
Central Agencies and Financial Services
Health
Water and Infrastructure
Community Services
Energy and Natural Resources

Most public sector entities, including departments, statutory bodies, and government owned corporations and the entities they control, prepare annual financial statements and table these in parliament. Each year the Treasurer also prepares consolidated state government financial statements. The consolidated state government financial statements separately disclose transactions and balances for the general government sector and the total state sector. 

Water: 2015–16 results of financial audits (Report 7: 2016–17)

Energy and Natural Resources

Queensland's state and local government owned water entities form part of the state's water supply chain. Comprising bulk water suppliers, retailers, distributors, local governments, and smaller water boards, these entities provide water to households, agriculture, mining, electricity generation, tourism, and manufacturing industries.

Energy: 2015–16 results of financial audits (Report 5: 2016–17)

Energy and Natural Resources

The four main energy entities—Stanwell Corporation Limited, CS Energy Limited, Queensland Electricity Transmission Corporation Limited (trading as Powerlink), and Energy Queensland Limited (EQL)—and 31 subsidiaries owned by the Queensland Government form part of the east coast national electricity grid. They are part of a supply chain that comprises generation, transmission, distribution, and retail.

Follow-up: Monitoring and reporting performance (Report 3: 2016–17)

This audit follows up on the three recommendations QAO made in Monitoring and reporting performance (Report 18: 2013–14), which was tabled in June 2014.

Public sector entities must report publicly on their performance as part of their accountability obligations. This demonstrates their effective stewardship and responsible use of taxpayer‑funded resources.

Forecasting long-term sustainability of local government (Report 2: 2016–17)

Local Government

Queensland's 77 councils provide vital infrastructure services that help grow local economies. They deliver roads, water, and sewerage services to an estimated 4.8 million people. Many also provide their communities with public open space, cleaning services, and cultural facilities such as museums and libraries. A small number operate childcare centres and other businesses.

Strategic procurement (Report 1: 2016–17)

Energy and Natural Resources

Procurement of services and supplies makes up a significant proportion of expenditure for Queensland Government departments. During 2015–16, 21 government departments and 16 Hospital and Health Services made around 2.1 million separate payments to procure about $10 billion of supplies and services from 33 903 suppliers (excluding capital spend). This is about 18 per cent of their total expenditure.
