Submission on Australian National Audit Office Draft 2020-21 Work Program

by Audrey Quicke and Tom Swann

The Australia Institute made a submission to the Australian National Audit Office endorsing proposed audits of the Underwriting New Generation Investment program (UNGI) and Snowy 2.0, and recommending close audit of the National COVID19 Coordination Commission (NCCC).

The UNGI program has no legislative basis, no formal guidelines or criteria for project selection, and is following no clear process. It should be included in the Work Program, along with an audit of the Snowy 2.0 governance arrangements. Additionally, issues raised by the NCCC warrant a separate and dedicated audit.
