Auditor-General for the Northern Territory February 2023 Report Page 7 of 131 Auditor-Generals Overview cont These 4 initiatives involve considerable financial expenditure by the Northern Territory Government and significant levels of financial and non-financial risk. Also included are the results of audits of financial statements for 3 entities with a financial year ended 30 June 2022 where the audits were completed between 1 November 2022 and 27 January 2023. During the period, a post-implementation review of the projects initiated to replace the across-government identity and access management systems ePASS and HPSM. The review found that the projects had been delivered successfully and achieved the intended outcomes. An analysis was undertaken of Flex time records for selected employees during the period 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022 inclusive, based on the report HR007 Leave sourced from BusinessObjects (BOXI-HR) on 5 July 2022. Opportunities to improve both the management of Flex time and the associated record-keeping were identified through this analysis. Agencies and entities are provided with the opportunity to comment on any of the matters reported in relation to their audit results. Where they choose to do so, their responses are detailed at the end of the relevant section. The Audit Act 1995 provides a legislative requirement for the Auditor-General to report to the Legislative Assembly on at least an annual basis. This is the third report provided for tabling within the Legislative Assembly for the year ending 30 June 2023, the last report was tabled during November 2022. A small number of audits scheduled to be commenced and completed in the period 1 July 2022 to 31 December 2022 are still to be completed. The outcomes of these audits (listed in Appendix 4: Status of Audit Activity) will be presented in a future report to the Legislative Assembly.
