Auditor General Sheila Fraser discussed the results of the international peer review of her office. A team led by the Australian National Audit Office carried out the review, along with representatives from the national audit offices of the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Fraser said that the review answers a question that is often asked: who audits the auditor general? Australia’s auditor general, Ian McPhee, and his colleagues Deborah Jackson, a senior director at the Australian National Audit Office, and Brandon Jarrett, executive director, testified via videoconference from Canberra, Australia.
