The constitutional responsibilities of this post include:
- Auditing the accounts and financial transactions of all government authorities, departments and courts
- Undertaking “value for money” investigations regarding the operations and projects of all government entities.
The Constitution also allows for future legislation to be passed in order to provide additional functions of the Auditor General. The PMFL currently provides for the additional responsibilities of the Auditor General and the Audit Office. In carrying out his responsibilities, the Auditor General is not subject to the control or direction of any person or authority, but must answer to the Public Accounts Committee of the Legislative Assembly and attend committee meetings at its request.
