The purpose of the Annual Report of the Auditor General is to report on the scope and findings of the work carried out by the Office of the Auditor General.

Objective and Scope

The scope and extent of audit work completed for 1999-2000 and recommended improvements to the specific financial and management control systems examined by the Office are described in section 2 of this Report.


This report contains 95 recommendations. The office was able to confirm that the consolidated financial results, although released early, were in fact presented fairly in accordance with the disclosed basis of accounting. However, the auditor general was particularly concerned, however, that it was necessary to include exceptions in the Auditor’s Report on Measuring Up without the opportunity of discussing them with the members of the Audit Committee.
