Performance auditing is an important and unique transparency and accountability tool within government. Through adhering to key auditing standards, including independence and professional judgment standards, and by using sound and innovative methodologies, performance auditors are well positioned and have an important responsibility for ensuring public monies, public services and enforcement actions are provided efficiently, effectively, and equitably.
