Auditor-General’s reports highlight issues of importance, and their tabling in Parliament generates considerable Parliamentary and community debate.

The Auditor-General cannot direct agencies to implement any changes
—that is the role of government.

The Auditor-General may, however, make recommendations. Recommendations suggest a course of action to address a finding. If adopted, they can lead to savings, efficiencies and improvements within the public sector.

Recommendations are a key tool for Members of Parliament, as they can help focus inquiries into action taken.

VAGO recommendations are directed only at public sector agencies and not associated entities.
