Preliminary assessment

A preliminary assessment is conducted where use of work expenses indicates a matter that may require further explanation.

This may be identified through direct contact, third party reporting or media, data indicator or post-payment validation. By reviewing publicly available information and information held or accessible by IPEA, a preliminary assessment evaluates the use of work expenses against the legislative framework.
