No Get Out of Jail Free card this time. ANAO slams ACIC in latest performance report.

Updated: Jul 16, 2019

To receive a report and be told you are “deficient in almost every significant respect”, is a pretty solid effort. It’s almost like you covered your eyes and let everything just happen around you; and that’s exactly how the Australian National Audit Office’s (ANAO)’s latest performance report reads.

The ANAO released it’s latest Performance Audit report on Monday 21 January. The objective of the audit was to assess the effectiveness of Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission’s (ACIC)’s administration of the Biometric Identification Services (BIS) project. It’s a lot to take in… bare with me.
