The ANAO’s purpose is to support accountability and transparency in the Australian Government sector through independent reporting to the Parliament, and thereby contribute to improved public sector performance.
The ANAO delivers its purpose under the Auditor-General’s mandate in accordance with the Auditor-General Act 1997, the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 and the Public Service Act 1999.
The ANAO’s primary relationship is with the Australian Parliament, particularly the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit (JCPAA). The committee has functions in relation to the ANAO as specified in the Public Accounts and Audit Committee Act 1951.
The ANAO supports the work of the Parliament by providing input to the Auditor-General’s independent reporting, assurance, opinions and assistance. ANAO assistance to the Parliament also occurs through the provision of submissions and information, appearances and briefings to parliamentarians and committees of the Parliament.
Through the audit and related services provided to the Parliament by the Auditor-General and ANAO, the Australian public can have confidence that the Auditor-General is examining and reporting on the actions of Commonwealth entities and whether public resources are being used economically, efficiently, effectively and ethically.
