The mission of the Auditor General of Alberta is to serve Albertans by conducting comprehensive risk-based audits that provide independent assessments to help the Legislative Assembly hold government accountable. We audit over 175 organizations, ranging from government departments, universities and colleges, to the health authority and financial institutions. Our audits provide our clients, the Members of the Legislative Assembly, with information they can use to effectively oversee and scrutinize public spending. We do this by performing a variety of financial statement and systems audits which lead to recommendations for improvements.
