SCRUTINY ON FUNDING PDF Print E-mail
News has been received from ATSIC of a recent directive from the Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, reinforcing the need for accountability in financial matters.

Nikki McCoy from ATSIC advises that any organisation which receives money from now on, will need to ensure that they have a good record of providing financial and project performance reports on time.
 
Language centres could be well advised to ensure their own reporting requirements are up to date to avoid delay in future funds. If the new 'special auditor' does find an organisation in breach, it is highly likely that funding will be withheld for that organisation in 1996/97.
