MS GALLAGHER: I present the government’s response to the report of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts entitled Review of Auditor-General’s Report No 8 of 2009: 2008-09 Financial Audits. I note that the recommendations in the committee’s report largely relate to the quality of performance measures in agency statements of performance, the implementation of audit recommendations, the unfunded superannuation liability review and information system internal controls.
In light of previous audit comments and outcomes, the majority of these recommendations have already been actioned and implemented by agencies, with the remainder relating to ongoing review and improvements over time.
The government’s response agrees to seven recommendations and notes four, on the basis that existing processes and procedures are already in place to address those recommendations. I commend the paper to the Assembly.
