In 2022/23, we continued to:

  • actively monitor and manage potential conflicts of interest for our staff, appointed auditors, and the audit service providers carrying out audits on behalf of the Auditor-General;
  • focus on our key relationships with Parliament and public organisations; and
  • focus on risks to our independence and reputation in our strategic risk register.
