    Expanding the audit program to federal employers

    Pilot project commenced March 2011:

    • CSIRO,

    • Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA), and

    • Australian Federal Police (AFP)


    Audit approach

    • Pre audit

      • Collaborative

      • Information sharing

  • Conducting the audit

    • Workshop environment

  • Post audit activities

    • development of Systems Improvement Plans (SIP)


  • Participant feedback

    • Case Managers were comfortable with the process and the manner in which the findings were analysed and reported

    • The audit findings provided an independent assessment which

    • support their own assessment in relation to gaps in their system

    • Provided an independent assessment of ‘best practice’ initiatives

    • Opportunity to take a step back from day to day business and look

    • at what systems exist


    Participant feedback

    • Did not feel prepared for the audit

    • Senior leaders needed to be made aware of the purpose of the

    • audit.

    • Audit program should extended to cover a cross-section of the

    • organisation’s RMS

    • Support required in developing and implementing SIP



    Change to audit methodology

    • Engaged senior leaders prior to establishing an audit program

    • Assisting Federal Employers establish RMS through a review or

    • ‘gap analysis’ of exiting systems using an audit methodology

    • Site reviews

    • Reviewed audit tool and workbook to ensure that it is relevant to

    • Federal Workplaces and easy to use


    Change to audit methodology

    • Provide greater assistance in preparing for the audit and

    • presentation of material for assessment.

    • Provide greater assistance in developing and implementing SIP.

    • Establish 6 month follow up.
