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.
The 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.
