Report of the Auditor General of Alberta
In this report, through our stand-alone systems audits, we call attention to some critical program areas of government and matters that impact Albertans—bridge safety, climate change and the protection of information assets. Through our financial statements audits, we report on identified weaknesses in financial controls and processes within the 175 government departments, boards, agencies, commissions and related organizations that we audit each year. For example, the weaknesses described in this report may result in inaccurate public reporting about oil and gas revenues, inefficiencies in Alberta’s post-secondary institutions and the risk of incurring unnecessary expenses.
There are a total of 33 recommendations to government in this report, three of which are repeated. We find it necessary to repeat these recommendations because we believe these departments have not done enough to demonstrate they have implemented our previous recommendations.
