The Australian Government Reconstruction Inspectorate completed its work on 30 June 2015.
The Inspectorate was established to oversee reconstruction activities in Queensland and Victoria after the unprecedented natural disaster events that occurred in Queensland between late 2010 and June 2013 and in Victoria in early 2011. The Inspectorate provided assurance that value-for-money was achieved for the expenditure of both Commonwealth and state funds during recovery and reconstruction.
The Inspectorate, supported by the National Disaster Recovery Taskforce, worked in partnership with the Queensland Reconstruction Authority and the Victorian Government to develop processes for project scrutiny; to ensure funding was available for innovative uses such as day labour and betterment; and to ensure reconstruction was focussed on getting essential assets back online.
If you have been affected by natural disaster, help is available. The Australian Government Disaster assist website provides up to date information about recovery assistance available following a natural disaster.
