26 Review of Supreme Court Security Conducted by: Connley Walker Pty Ltd Purpose: Evaluate the adequacy of security arrangements. Protect the safety of people within the Supreme Court building. Recommend cost-effective improvements where appropriate. Outcome: A number of security risks were identified. Action: Ten of 12 recommendations will be completed by the end of September 2006. One of the two outstanding recommendations should be completed by June 2007, however the implementation of both depends on funding availability. Review of Financial Management Conducted by: Stanton Partners Pty Ltd Purpose: Evaluate the quality of the departments budget development and budget management processes and make recommendations for improvement where appropriate. Outcome: The review found that, while Justice is continuously improving its current practices in its goal to move towards a single department, there remains plenty of scope for further improvements, particularly in the areas of: Improving the consistency and transparency of financial management practices across the department; Maximising the ability to deliver increased services within shrinking budgets; Maximising the departments ability to optimise its budget allocation; Reducing competition for resources within the department; and Moving towards a consolidated department and away from individual agencies. Action: The department has implemented all recommendations in the report. Review of Administration of Public Trustee Wills, Estates and Trusts Conducted by: Risk Management Services Purpose: Determine if existing arrangements provide for the efficient and effective administration of wills, estates and trusts. Outcome: The current management, control and accountability arrangements in the administration of wills, estates and trusts are generally sound. There are, however, risks associated with staff turnover that can impact on the effectiveness of the control mechanisms that are in place, and potential Information Technology and property control improvements were identified. Action: Nine of 18 issues have been completed. Remaining matters are at various stages of completion. Other audits and reviews actioned throughout the year were: Information management; Review of human resource management; Magistrates Courts Registry operations; Remote Courts needs assessment; Supreme Court custodial contract compliance; Magistrates Court files audit; Review of the Criminal Property Forfeiture Act; and Interim financial statements and end of year compliance audits.
