Event Funding Audit Results

Auditor General Report reveals the benefits of funding regional events

The Tasmanian Government contributes funding to more than 100 events annually, at an estimated annual cost of $10.0 million.

By reporting on an audit of funding in 2014, Rod Whitehead the Auditor General hopes the Report:

  • emphasises the importance of being able to evaluate individual events in their own right so that sound decisions can be made on which events to support
  • enhances the understanding of the value that government funded events provide to Tasmania.

Advice provided in the report makes recommendations on the assessment of events prior and post to them happening and would be of use to both funding bodies and event managers alike.
