Auditor-General for the Northern Territory February 2008 Report 63 Department of Health and Community Services cont The system owner advised that once the new system has been fully implemented, a review will be done to identify what access is required by particular job roles and leverage off the new functionality available. These roles will then be used to control user access going forward. In remote sites, where system access cannot be easily segregated, the implementation manual controls (such as co-signatories on purchase orders and goods receipts) will be investigated. The Department of Health and Community Services has commented: The department agrees with and is currently addressing the audit recommendations. Changes such as the creation of an access request template and the implementation of more restricted physical access through a swipe card system have already been implemented. A process for notifying system owners or delegates when an employee leaves the organisation is being implemented. A physically separate test environment for Ascribe v9 has been put in place. Version 9 of the software will address the other issues raised along with a review of how this works in small/remote sites.
