Our people

The Office of the Auditor-General's leadership team currently consists of the Auditor-General, the Deputy Auditor-General, and seven Assistant Auditors-General.

We also have a team of sector managers, who are the contact people in our Office for the organisations we audit, and an Assistant Controller, who leads the team carrying out the Controller function.
