The Audit Act 2008 (the Act), s44, requires the Tasmanian Audit Office (TAO) to be subjected to a review of the efficiency, effectiveness and economy of its operations at least once in every five years. The first review was conducted in 2013 and this report covers the period from 2014 to 2018.
An independent auditor may be engaged by the Office, or the Treasurer is to appoint a registered company auditor within the meaning of the Corporations Act to conduct the review.
If the latter appointment occurs, the Treasurer is to consult with the Auditor-General in regard to the terms and conditions of appointment.
Moore Stephens Audit (Vic) was selected to carry out the review.
