Treasurer Ben Wyatt has today announced Caroline Spencer will take up the role as Western Australia’s next Auditor General.

“On behalf of the Western Australian Government, I would like to congratulate Ms. Spencer on her appointment.” Treasurer Ben Wyatt said.

“Auditor General plays an important role in keeping governments accountable, and I am sure that Ms. Spencer will perform this duty admirably.”

Ms. Spencer holds significant experience as a specialist in public sector audit, risk and governance review at a State and Federal level. She also conducted an official review of the Office of the Auditor General in 2015, and as such has significant understanding of the role.

She has most recently been the managing partner and co-founder of Canberra-based professional services firm Vista Advisory.

Ms. Spencer was appointed by Her Excellency the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC, Governor of Western Australia, on March 13, 2018.

“I would also like to sincerely thank Mr. Colin Murphy for his service to the Western Australian public over the last 10 years, and wish him all the very best with his new endeavours.” Treasurer Ben Wyatt said.

Ms. Spencer was selected from a field of 33 applicants, and will be the first female Auditor General for Western Australia.
