Description

The Assurance review framework is administered by the Department of Finance and Deregulation and it assists agencies in the provision of assurance for high risk programs and projects. 

The framework draws on a number of established methodologies including The Better Practice Guide on Implementation of Programme and Policy Initiatives (Australian National Audit Office and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, October 2006) and the United Kingdom's Office of Government Commerce Gateway Review Process ™ (Gateway).

Gateway is an assurance methodology that involves a series of brief, independent reviews at critical stages in the development and implementation stages.  Gateway is a highly interactive, cooperative process between the implementing agency and the Gateway review team commissioned to undertake the review.

Implementation Readiness Assessments (IRA) are a brief independent implementation review prior to consideration of the proposal by Government. IRA reviews differ from Gateway reviews because the assurance is provided directly to Ministers (rather than the agency Senior Responsible Official – as is the case with Gateway reviews).


Reviewers are sourced from the public and private sectors, and are selected for their skills and experience, but must not be associated with the project/program under review.  This facilitates the independent peer assessment against the specified objectives, and an early identification of areas requiring corrective action.


Potential private sector reviewers that meet the Conditions for Participation will be included on the Gateway and Assurance Multi-Use List (MUL).  The MUL is not an exclusive arrangement from which to source potential reviewers.  Reviewers are individuals, selected for their skills and experience; therefore applications must be submitted by individuals and not by business entities.  However, reviewers may be engaged via a third party, such as their employer.
