The purpose of the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit (JCPAA) has remained essentially unchanged since it was first established in 1913: to hold Commonwealth agencies to account for the lawfulness, efficiency and effectiveness with which they use public monies.
In support of this in the 43rd Parliament, the Committee decided to hold regular public hearings involving the heads of the key agencies responsible for public sector governance and administration, to discuss whole of government issues and trends.
