Objective and Scope

We established an annual rotational audit of departments’ systems for verifying that these expenses of the premier, ministers, associate ministers and their staff comply with policies. We audit each department once very three years. This year, we audited the systems at the following departments:

  • Advanced Education
  • Culture and Tourism
  • Education
  • Energy
  • Executive Council
  • Health
  • Service Alberta


The table on page 54 summarizes our conclusions on departments’ systems and good practices. Advanced Education has systems in place, but these systems need improvement to verify that expenses comply with policies. The recommendation and findings section below describes the weaknesses and recommendation to Advanced Education. We did not identify weaknesses which required recommendations in other departments we examined.
