This 2021/22 annual report is the main accountability document for the Controller and Auditor-General. It describes the work we have carried out to demonstrate how we will achieve our ultimate outcome – that Parliament and the public have trust and confidence in New Zealand’s public sector.

Clint came over from South Africa in 2009 and now leads one of our most important audits – auditing the financial statements of the Government (6 of 10)

The annual report informs our stakeholders – Parliament, public organisations, and New Zealanders – about our strategic intentions, priorities, and performance for the year 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022. It has been prepared in keeping with the requirements of the Public Audit Act 2001 and the Public Finance Act 1989.

In this report, the “Office” includes the Auditor-General, the Deputy Auditor-General, the Office of the Auditor-General Tumuaki o te Mana Arotake, Audit New Zealand Mana Arotake Aotearoa, the Corporate Services Group, and contracted audit service providers.
