Summary Audit Report no. 5 made 22 recommendations with which the Department of Defence agreed. The Australian National Audit Office recommendations reinforced and expanded on themes raised in the 1996 Defence Efficiency Review findings and recommendations. The Committee's review focussed on a range of key issues. These included best practice in supply chain performance management; managing inventory as an asset; increasing the use of clearer preformance targets; the capacity of Defence logistics information systems to support integrated and effective performance management; the use of benchmarking to enhance performance; the impact of performance management on Defence's inventory management culture; and the availability and retention of inventory management expertise within the service. Audit report no. 10 on the ATC canvassed the extent to which the ATC is meeting all of its statutory objectives, as part of its corporate governnance framework. A reliable corporate governance framework provides a structure for the Board and senior management of an agency to make informed decisions with the assurance that appropriate controls are in place and that risks are managed effectively. The Committee is concerned that areas of weakness identified in various audits and reviews have not been addressed because of a lack of effective and ongoing processes to monitor and implement recommendations.-01
