Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 7 Hansard (17 October) . . Page.. 1729 ..

MRS CARNELL (continuing):

The next issue was ACTION and adequate control of ticket stock. A review of the ticketing system was undertaken by the Audit Office in the course of its audit of the 1993-94 financial statements. The Audit Office considered that controls in relation to tickets had been improved and, following extensive testing of the system, was of the view that reliable data were produced. This provided the Audit Office with an assurance that all proceeds from ticket sales had been received by ACTION. Further improvements in this area have been achieved through the introduction in recent days of an automated ticketing system. On the issue of ACT Fleet, I again direct members to the Government response on ACT Fleet operations for a detailed summary.

Next is the issue of agency financial statements and qualifications with regard to those. Members will be aware that the Auditor-General provided a number of qualified audit reports for the financial year ending 30 June 1994. The financial reform program I have referred to earlier in this statement and before in this Assembly will address the problems identified by the Auditor-General. A central element of these reforms is a training program on reporting guidelines and accrual accounting. For 1995-96, all agencies will be required to report on a full accrual basis.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
