External scrutiny

In 2016–17 the Auditor-General reported on operations of the Commission in relation to controls over credit card use.

In November 2016 the Senate Education and Employment References Committee tabled a report on the government’s APS workplace bargaining policy. The committee made 17 recommendations arising from its inquiry into the impact of the Government’s workplace bargaining policy and approach to Commonwealth public sector bargaining.

There were no reports by parliamentary committees, the Commonwealth Ombudsman or the Australian Information Commissioner involving the Commission in the reporting year.

Reports of general application are considered by the Commission’s Audit and Risk Management Committee.

No judicial decisions or decisions of administrative tribunals in 2016–17 had a significant impact on the Commission’s operations.
