The office's 2010/11 work report, released today, contains over 130 pages of current and proposed government audits.
It mentions a possible audit of the Department of Health and Ageing's national e-health implementation scheme to investigate management and co-ordination strategies used in deploying e-health in Australia.
The ANAO also flagged a possible audit involving progress on recommendations set forth by the Gershon Review on federal government IT. Specifically, the audit would examine "how selected Australian government organisations have implemented new arrangements in response to the ICT Reform Program", according to the report.
The 2008 technology review, headed up by Sir Peter Gershon, set down recommendations for the management of governmental IT services in Australia.
