Australian National Audit Office

The Auditor-General is an independent officer of the parliament. Supported by the Australian National Audit OfficeExternal Link (ANAO), the Auditor-General provides an independent assessment of public sector reporting, administration and accountability.

For us, this means that the ANAO conducts performance audits that examine the efficiency and effectiveness of our administration. Each year the ANAO also undertakes a financial statement audit that provides assurance that our financial report gives a true and fair view of our financial position.

The ANAO adopts a consultative approach to developing its forward work program and includes stakeholders such as, Inspector-General of Taxation, the Commonwealth Ombudsman and the Commissioner of Taxation.
