Responsibility: We're in this Together!
If you are selected for an audit, do not feel singled out. Being selected for an audit does not necessarily mean that we think you are doing something wrong. The Department of Internal Audit has the right to examine all ministries /departments or quangos to ensure:
- public funds are adequately safeguarded and are used as intended;
- public funds are used economically, effectively and efficiently;
- risks are appropriately identified and managed;
- financial, managerial and operating information is accurate, reliable and timely;
- the auditee's actions are in compliance with policies, standards, procedures and the law; and
- plans, goals and objectives of the auditee are capable of being achieved
All information furnished by you during the course of any internal audit shall at all times be treated by the Department as confidential and shall be used by the Department solely for the purpose of carrying out the internal audit. The Department takes this requirement very seriously. If you have any questions about confidentiality, please do not hesitate to discuss them with us.
Everyone has some level of responsibility for internal control. The level will vary depending on your role. If you suspect an irregularity or system deficiency concerning Government money or property contact the Director of Internal Audit at firstname.lastname@example.org and the Accountant General Department.
