1 - Introduction

This third volume of the Appendix provides additional detail supporting the analysis and research undertaken for the Phase Two Report of the National Commission of Audit (the Commission).

Consistent with the approach the Commission took with its Phase One Report (which had two accompanying volumes of the Appendix), this volume provides reference lists for material used in the Phase Two Report.

Volume 3 of the Appendix covers:

  • the Australian Public Service;
  • infrastructure; and
  • Other matters, including further rationalisation of bodies and other saving proposals.

Along with Volumes 1 and 2, this volume emphasises the evidence-based approach of the Commission and provides a foundation to the findings and recommendations contained in the Report of the National Commission of Audit.
