An Independent Audit (PDF, 590 KB) of the Reef Water Quality Protection Plan 2009 (Reef Plan) was undertaken in late 2010 and early 2011. The audit found that progress was positive overall and the partners involved in the program felt positive, engaged and committed.
The audit found there had been positive progress in implementing the 11 actions, particularly given the short time frames since Reef Plan 2009 was formally endorsed and the significant number of people involved in the program.
The audit, however, also highlighted some areas for improvement and the Australian and Queensland Governments are committed to continually improving the program.
Further audits will be undertaken as necessary to assess progress with implementing Reef Plan.
An independent audit (Report to the Prime Minister and the Premier of Queensland (PDF, 3.50 MB)) was also undertaken in 2005.
