AGO Auditing Service

About AGO
AGO is an independent organ of state and the national auditor. We play an important role in enhancing public accountability in the management and use of public funds and resources through our audit. Our independence allows us to carry out our audits without fear and favour.

We audit government ministries and departments, organs of state, statutory boards, government funds and other public authorities and bodies administering public funds (upon their request for audit).  Our observations include system weaknesses, non-compliance with control procedures or legislation, and instances of excess, extravagance, or gross inefficiency leading to waste in the use of public funds and resources.

Our Vision
To be a respected national audit institution – Professional, Independent, Effective.

Our Mission
To audit and report to the President and Parliament on the proper accounting and use of public resources so as to enhance public accountability and help strengthen the financial governance of the public service.
