This Week's Highlight - Auditing Opportunities

Auditing is a skill set required by most if not all organisations. Quality accredited organisations will use internal auditors to ensure continuing compliance and external or third party auditors to check and accredit compliance. Government agencies are no different, utlising internal auditors to improve their own practices and third party auditors to provide independent verification. The Australian National Audit Office (ANAO) is that external auditor for government and like many other government agencies, it finds itself under resourced. As a result, Requests for Tender are frequently released seeking the supply of auditing services. Although Parliament represents the principal client for the ANAO, it also undertakes auditing services for a number of commercially oriented entities, preparing audit reports on financial statements which can then be published in company annual reports.

Currently there are two such requirements open, one for the audit of the ABC’s Financial Statements, closing 9 July and a new RFT for Financial Statement Audits of ASC Pty Ltd which closes 13 July. These RFTs are for 3 year contracts with potential to extend to 6 years and require the provision of annual reports and half year reviews in accordance with an approved audit plan. For the more recent RFT regarding ASC pty Ltd, an optional industry briefing is being held at ASC Offices in South Australia on 29 June.

Internal and external auditing opportunities are also frequently released by state government agencies and are worth looking out for if this is your skill set.
