‘Govt auditor needs to adopt latest practices’

The government auditor needs to adopt latest professional practices while scrutinising public spending, Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) Shashi Kant Sharma has said.

“Supreme Audit Institutions (SAI) need to ensure that nothing escapes the public eye. At the same time, SAIs need to gear themselves up for tighter public scrutiny and thus need to establish impeccable credentials.

“They need to adopt the latest professional practices; augment their technical and physical capacities, and strengthen their ethics and integrity frameworks,” he said. Sharma was speaking at the Asian Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (ASOSAI) conference in Kuala Lumpur.
