Our Mandate, Mission, Vision and Values
Our mandate is to promote accountability through quality audit in the public sector and ensure that public resources are applied in the purposes intended.
The international standards on auditing require that auditors, like other professionals, should abide by the code of ethics which expects their conduct to be beyond reproach at all times and in all circumstances. Any deficiency in their professional conduct places their integrity, that of the OAG and the quality and validity of their work in an unfavourable light.
The adoption and application of a code of ethics for auditors promotes trust and confidence in the auditors and their work. A code of ethics recognizes that the objectives of the profession are to work to the highest standards of professionalism, to attain the highest levels of performance and to meet the public interest requirements.
The values and principles embodied in the code of ethics of auditors, have also been adopted as the values for the OAG.
To be the best performing supreme audit institution.
Our mission is to promote accountability through quality audits in the public sector and assure the nation that public resources are applied for purposes intended.
The following statement of values are to help guide the behavior of all staff members of the OAG:
