The Australian National Audit Office has released a report which questions the economic benefits of the Federal Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda. Amongst other things, the ANAO has raised concerns about the limited time-frame in which the innovation agenda was developed and the criteria used to measure the performance of the scheme. The NISA was launched in late 2015, and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull stated in December 2016 that it had resulted in increased jobs and investment.
