The Auditor General’s role is to audit the finances and activities of Western Australian state and local government entities, and report their findings to Parliament.
Parliament seeks independent assurance from the Auditor General that public sector entities are providing services and using public money in accordance with Parliament’s purpose.
We provide this assurance through annual financial audits and a performance audit program. Our audit reports aim to increase transparency of the public sector, and where necessary make recommendations for improvements to an entity’s governance and efficiency and effectiveness of services.
To carry out their duties effectively, the Auditor General must act independently and be free from pressure, influence or interference from any source.
