Appraisal of Administration

Appraisal of Administration

In the public sector profit cannot be relied upon as a measure of efficiency. Government auditors must not only see that accounts give a true and fair view but that the organisation under audit has received value for the funds spent.

Government auditors cover Departments of State (both administrative and developmental) public corporation (N.A.C, Tourist Hotel Corporation etc), marketing boards (Dairy Board, Meat Board etc) and local authorities (City Councils, Harbour Boards, Electric Power boards, Hospital boards, Education boards etc.)

Government auditors on behalf of Parliament and the citizens of New Zealand ensure that the stated social and political purposes of these agencies are carried out with the most effective and economical use of funds allocated to them.
