Our independence and reputation

Our independence and strong mandate underpin all our work and activities.

We continued to:

  • actively monitor and manage potential conflicts of interest for our staff and the audit service providers carrying out audits on behalf of the Auditor-General; and
  • focus on risks to our independence and reputation in our strategic risk register.
