Written answers (Question to Finance)

The Department monitors compliance with its relevant legislative, regulatory and internal procedural obligations under its Compliance Framework.  These obligations are set out in various registers including a Compliance Obligations Register which is managed and monitored by the Department’s Compliance Officer.

Compliance obligation deadlines are monitored on a regular basis and issues requiring attention are reported to the Executive Board and/or the Minister for Finance as necessary. 

The Department’s Registers are an important control measure to help identify accurate and up to date compliance obligations and is used to support the development and documentation of appropriate controls and procedures to ensure ongoing compliance with the Department’s obligations.
