It's an exciting time to be in audit!

We're a specialist public sector agency that supports the Auditor-General of Australia to conduct audits of Australian Government agencies. We report to the Parliament and are proud of the important role we play in keeping government agencies accountable for their exercise of authority and expenditure of public funds. 

Through our audits, we investigate and report on how government agencies operate, including their finances and how they manage programs, implement policy and run IT systems to achieve the aims of government.  

As an ANAO auditor, you could examine the Australian Government: 

  • program implementation, management and monitoring
  • IT systems
  • financial statements
  • service delivery
  • procurement processes, contract and grants management
  • management of defence assets
  • policy development processes
  • and more!

Think about all the fast-moving policy and implementation challenges faced by the government right now. Along with advances that have been made in technology and analytics, it really is an exciting time to be in audit!
