The Auditor General is an independent Officer of the Legislature, appointed by the elected members of the Legislative Assembly for a single term in office of up to eight years. Together with her staff, she selects and performs audits as the Office of the Auditor General.
These audits serve the people of British Columbia and their elected representatives by reporting on how well government is managing its responsibilities and resources.
Under the Auditor General Act, the Auditor General has a mandate to audit the goverment reporting entity (GRE) consisting of ministries, Crown corporations and other organizations controlled by, or accountable to, the provincial government. The Act also allows the Auditor General to audit entities outside the GRE with prior consent from the Select Standing Committee on Public Accounts.
