Who audits the Auditor-General?

MPs' guide to the Auditor-General.

The Auditor-General is held to account by the Officers of Parliament Committee, which is chaired by the Speaker, and by the Finance and Expenditure Committee, which reviews Vote Audit.

The Officers of Parliament Committee appoints a private sector auditing firm to do an annual audit of the Auditor-General’s financial and service performance.

The Auditor-General also has an independent Audit and Risk Committee and is subject to many professional standards and periodic international peer review by their counterparts from overseas audit offices.
