Annual Report of the Auditor-General for the year ended 30 June 2017

This Report is in three parts – Part A, Part B and the Appendix to the Annual Report.

Part A: Executive summary contains the opinions the Auditor-General is required to give under section 36 and identifies any examinations that have made under section 32 of the Public Finance and Audit Act 1987. It also summarises the main matters brought to the attention of the Parliament and the SA Government resulting from the 2016-17 audits of public sector agencies.

Part B: Agency audit reports contains a summary of the outcomes of the audit of each agency included in the 2016-17 Auditor-General’s Annual Report. It features a snapshot of key agency information covering functional responsibility, financial statistics, significant events and transactions, and whether the financial statement and financial controls opinions are unmodified or modified (qualified).

The Appendix to the Annual Report (Volumes 1 to 5) contains the Treasurer’s statements and scanned copies of the final audited financial reports of public sector agencies that were forwarded to me that are, in my opinion, of sufficient importance to warrant publication.
