When are audits conducted?
Principal employer organisations (PEOs) are required to undertake different types of audits, scheduled at different times.
An initial compliance audit report will be incorporated into the application for recognition as a PEO.
Queensland Quality Standards for principal employer organisations require PEOs to conduct an annual self-assessment audit against the standards. These self-assessment audits will enable the PEO to identify issues and implement improvements to ensure continued compliance.
A PEO is required to undertake the self-assessment process by 31 December. The Chief Executive of the corporation will forward a signed statement to the department that the self-assessment audit has been completed and the corporation is compliant against the Queensland Quality Standards by 31 January of the following year.
These self-assessment audit reports are required for both desk-based audits and site audits.
