How the Auditor-General is funded

Councillors' guide to the Auditor-General.

The Auditor-General is funded:

  • by the Crown through Vote Audit for audit and assurance services, performance audits and inquiries, and supporting accountability to Parliament; and
  • from audit fees paid by public organisations for annual audits, and other assurance work carried out by the Auditor-General's business arm, Audit New Zealand, at the request of public organisations. Contracted audit service providers, including Audit New Zealand, invoice public organisations and collect fees directly.
