Please note...

If the Auditor-General decides to carry out an inquiry, the Office won't normally have any comment to make until we release a report. It is hard to predict what might emerge or transpire as we carry out an inquiry so it is equally hard to predict when we might be ready to report our findings.

Update on audit timelines Update on audit timelines

31 January 2023: We completed most 30 June 2022 audits with a statutory time frame of 30 September 2022 on time, including the audit of the Financial Statements of the Government. However, auditor shortages, challenging immigration settings, staff turnover, and higher sick leave (in audit firms and in public organisations) continue to affect some public sector audits with later statutory time frames.
