Issues arising from the Premature Release of the Draft Reports of the Auditor-General

On 23 June 2010 the Committee resolved to conduct an inquiry into issues arising from the premature release of the draft reports of the Auditor-General and the Public Finance and Audit Act 1983.

(1) Internal security measures in place to protect the integrity of information in draft reports; (2) What safeguards, if any, are in place to ensure draft reports provided to the Head of the authority, responsible Minister and Treasurer are treated with discretion; (3) The relevant statutory provisions in relation to how confidential information in draft reports should be treated; and (4) Any suggestions you may have, including amendments to legislation, to reduce the risk of future leaks.
