Audit and assurance

Auditing and assurance review is a critical tool for the Murray–Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) in encouraging and monitoring compliance with the Basin Plan. Under the Water Act and the Basin Plan, the MDBA has a broad audit function with significant information gathering, inspection and investigation powers. The MDBA will undertake and publish its own monitoring, auditing and, if required, investigations, to provide the community with confidence that the Basin Plan reporting is accurate and implementation is on track. Audits and investigations may be undertaken as part of the annual work program, or they may be instigated in response to a specific incident or intelligence reports.
