Follow up of the Auditor-General's Performance Audits September 2010 - February 2011

Under section 57 of the Public Finance and Audit Act 1983, the functions of the Committee include the examination of any report of the Auditor-General laid before the Legislative Assembly and any circumstances connected with those reports. In order to examine the reports, the Committee requests all agencies that are the subject of recommendations or significant comments in a report, 12 months after the tabling of that report, to provide a submission outlining the agency’s response, including any action to date. This submission is then examined, further comment is sought from the Auditor-General, and the Committee may subsequently hold a public hearing with relevant agency officers to clarify issues or obtain further information. The Committee then publishes the submissions and reports on its findings. The current inquiry includes the Committee’s examination of the following Auditor-General's reports tabled between September 2010 and February 2011: Home Detention Protecting the Environment: Pollution Incidents Helicopter Emergency Medical Service Contract Electronic Information Security NSW Lotteries Sales Transactions Coal Mining Royalties Sick Leave Mental Health Workforce.
