Making a Difference - A Strategic Plan for 2011 to 2013
Making a Difference, the strategic plan of the Office of the Auditor General (the OAG) captures how we want to take forward the work of the Office to ensure that we meet our statutory obligations by driving lasting improvements in value for money during this period of challenge for scarce public resources. It has been prepared in consultation with our team and other key stakeholders.
The core activities of the OAG continue to be the financial audit of government and its agencies, and the provision of performance audit reports to the Legislative Assembly. Holding Government to account for its spending and for providing value for money in public services remains a key focus, but this is balanced by our vision of ensuring our work promotes good governance, transparency and accountability of public funds used by the Cayman Islands Government. We have captured our plans under four broad strategic objectives:
The achievement of these objectives present the OAG with some challenges, but they are important in ensuring that we are a well respected and effective provider of public audit to the Cayman Islands, and seen as a leader in our field within the Caribbean, and more widely within the public audit community.
Our Vision and Values
In developing our strategic plan we developed a clear vision for the work that the Office of the Auditor General carries out, along with three core values that underpin our vision. We envision that:
“Our independent work promotes good governance, transparency and accountability in the use of public funds”
The three core values underpinning our vision are:
Our vision and values provide an overarching framework under which we developed the strategic objectives and related activities that make up our Strategic Plan. Our vision and values are also underpinned by a Code of Conduct, and policies on ethics and independence which outline the standards of behavior that are expected by all OAG staff.
