Fundamental principles of good governance in the public sector include integrity, transparency and accountability. The importance of meeting these principles for the Office of the Auditor General (OAG) is fundamental to its integrity and credibility in holding the rest of the public sector to account for their actions and use of scarce public resources. The OAG is committed to economy, transparency, accountability and the highest ethical standards in how it is managed and administered.
To support these fundamental principles the OAG proactively discloses through our website information about the interests, expenses and hospitality received by our senior management as well as all significant expenses incurred and contracts entered into by the OAG. Specifically we disclose the following information:
These disclosures are designed to provide additional transparency about the internal transactions of the OAG. We consider that making these disclosures is an important element in providing accountability for the operations of the OAG as well as supporting freedom of information. Further information on our policies regarding proactive disclosure can be found in the OAG Proactive Disclosure Policy
