PROVISION OF A SOLUTION FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF AUDITS
Show close time for other time zones
The Australian National Audit Office (ANAO) is seeking to engage a Service Provider to design, implement, and support a Solution that will enable the ANAO to support both audits and broader business functions. This Solution will replace the current system used by the ANAO to manage audits.
This Solution will support delivery of quality audits, including (where appropriate) incorporating ANAO’s existing audit methodology or adopting a replacement methodology that can be integrated with the Solution.
Specifically, the Solution should provide the ANAO with the capability to:
(i) Provide a repository of templates to support audit/business standards. The repository should be readily accessible to ensure audits/business functions are undertaken consistently and in accordance with approved standards.
(ii) Support authors, reviewers, and approvers. As part of audits/business functions, evidence gathered and files produced are readily and easily accessible for review and approval. Finding everything in the same place (i.e., file structure) makes the review/approval process easy and efficient.
(iii) Provide Assurance - Sufficient evidence (version control, audit log of actions performed on document/evidence etc.) to provide assurance that documents (evidence, audit papers, audit reports, business documents) are what they purport to be.
(iv) Integrate with other business systems (e.g., EDRMS) to connect/link to relevant artefacts captured in these systems.
Through this Request for Tender (RFT), the ANAO invites suitably qualified Service Providers to submit Tender responses for a Solution for the Management of Audits to replace its current system.
