External Scrutiny

External audit

Other than the annual financial statement audit there have not been any audits of our office undertaken by the ANAO in FY20.

Reports on operations

No reports in FY20 on the operations of our office were issued by the Auditor-General (other than the report on financial statements which is reproduced later in Part 5 of this report) or the Commonwealth Ombudsman.

In FY20, the SELC undertook an Inquiry into the Performance of the Inspector-General of Taxation. The IGTO appeared before the Committee for this inquiry on 18 October 2019 and 6 December 2019. We also made several submissions to the inquiry. The Committee’s report was published on 17 June 2020. The report listed 16 recommendations which are set out in Appendix 1 and are recommendations for Government to consider.

Judicial, administrative tribunal or Australian Information Commissioner decisions

No judicial decisions, decisions of administrative tribunals or decisions by the Australian Information Commissioner were made that have had, or may have, a significant impact on the operations of our office.
