2017–18 Major projects report 8.94 MB

The objective of this report is to provide the Auditor-General’s independent assurance over the status of the selected Major Projects. The status of the selected Major Projects is reported in the Statement by the Secretary of Defence and the Project Data Summary Sheets (PDSSs) prepared by Defence. Assurance from the ANAO’s review is conveyed in the Independent Assurance Report by the Auditor-General.

The report is organised into four parts:

  • Part 1 comprises the ANAO’s review and analysis;
  • Part 2 comprises Defence’s commentary, analysis and appendices (not included within the scope of the Independent Assurance Report by the Auditor-General);
  • Part 3 incorporates the Independent Assurance Report by the Auditor-General, the Statement by the Secretary of Defence, and the PDSSs prepared by Defence as part of the assurance review process; and
  • Part 4 reproduces the 2017–18 Major Projects Report Guidelines endorsed by the JCPAA, which provide the criteria for the compilation of the PDSSs by Defence and the ANAO’s review.
