With the retirement of the former incumbent, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly invites applications for the full-time position of Auditor-General.
The ACT Auditor-General is an independent statutory officer of the ACT Legislative Assembly. The ACT community and Assembly Members rely on the Auditor-General to provide assurance on the appropriateness of public expenditure and the performance of Territory agencies. The Auditor-General leads a team of around 30 people and has complete independence from government in determining the audit program, what to audit, how to audit and what to report.
The Auditor-General Act 1996 sets out eligibility criteria for appointment for a seven year period. Extensive knowledge of and experience in governance and risk management or public administration is mandatory. To succeed, high order leadership, communication, negotiation, representational and interpersonal skills are fundamental requirements. Remuneration and other entitlements for the position are determined by the ACT Remuneration Tribunal.
