The ACT’s Auditor-General Tu-Pham has been a source of unrelenting embarrassment to the Stanhope government. So it comes as no surprise to see an ABC story on concerns that the Auditor is being under-funded.
- Auditor-General Tu Pham has told a Legislative Assembly estimates committee that her Department is unable to audit most of the Government’s spending because of a lack of funding.
She says her department needs an extra $400,000 in the last Budget to maintain its current level of auditing but its funding was not increased.
It seems there are 100 areas of concern to Ms Pham, but the funding will cover just eight audits a year.
