External Audit

Component 8: External Audit

Objective: To enhance the independence of the Office of the Auditor General to provide timely and quality audits and increase the scope of their audits to cover Line Ministries and higher Local Governments.

The office of the External Auditor (OAG) needs to be brought in the line with international norms and practices advocated for by the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI). Following the enactment of the Audit Act, the next step will be to bring the activities of the OAG up to international standards by providing training, and equipping the offices with suitable planning, management and execution tools.
