Speaker's Foreword

Annual plan 2005/06.

I am pleased to introduce the Controller and Auditor-General's Annual Plan for the 2005/06 financial year.1

The Controller and Auditor-General is an Officer of Parliament whose role is to act on behalf of Parliament by assisting it to strengthen the effectiveness, efficiency, and accountability of public sector organisations.

The Annual Plan indicates how the Controller and Auditor-General intends to discharge his duties and apply the resources made available to him in the forthcoming financial year. It gives Parliament an appropriate basis for holding the Controller and Auditor-General to account for his Office’s performance during 2005/06.

Hon Margaret Wilson MP
