The Office of the Auditor General of Barbados is an independent audit office serving Parliament and the people of Barbados. We conduct financial audits of the government's financial statements (public accounts). In doing so, the Office assists Parliament in holding the government and its administrators accountable for the administration's stewardship of public funds. The Office thus contributes to better-managed government programs and better accountability to Parliament and the public.
In addition to financial audits the Auditor General may on his own initiative carry out special examinations into the financial management of Ministries, Departments, Statutory Authorities and government controlled entities. This includes the manner in which these entities use their resources in discharging their functions as regards the efficiency and effectiveness of the use of these resources.
The Office has developed this site in order to provide easy access to our reports and a greater awareness of the role of the Barbados Audit Office.
