The International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) operates as an umbrella organisation for the external government audit community. For more than 50 years it has provided an institutionalised framework for supreme audit institutions to promote development and transfer of knowledge, improve government auditing worldwide and enhance professional capacities, standing and influence of member SAIs in their respective countries. In keeping with INTOSAI's motto, 'Experientia mutua omnibus prodest', the exchange of experience among INTOSAI members and the findings and insights which result, are a guarantee that government auditing continuously progresses with new developments.

About us

Our audit of central government has two main aims. By reporting the results of our audits to Parliament, we hold government departments and bodies to account for the way they use public money, thereby safeguarding the interests of taxpayers. In addition, our work aims to help public service managers improve performance and service delivery. The Audit and inspection rights are vested in the head of the National Audit Office, the Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG).

Independence The Comptroller and Auditor General, Amyas Morse, is an Officer of the House of Commons. Strategic Priorities Our work reveals recurring issues across different government departments and bodies, including three general areas where we have found that improvement is frequently needed.

Office for Budget Responsibility » What we do

It is one of a growing number of official independent fiscal watchdogs around the world. We have four main roles: We produce five-year forecasts for the economy and public finances twice a year. The forecasts accompany the Chancellor’s Budget Statement (usually in March) and his Autumn Statement (usually in late November) and they incorporate the impact of any tax and spending measures announced by the Chancellor. The details of the forecasts are set out in our Economic and fiscal outlook (EFO) publications. These four roles all focus on the public finances at a UK-wide level. In support of these activities, we undertake a variety of research projects through the year. We answer parliamentary questions on our forecasts and give evidence to parliamentary committees. BRC members and OBR staff also give talks and presentations at external events. OECD - Performance and accountability: Making government work.

Whether setting targets or timetables, governments want to become more efficient.

OECD - Performance and accountability: Making government work

Becoming more accountable helps too. Reasons include increasing claims on public expenditure, particularly pensions, healthcare and education, expectations of higher quality public services in line with rising living standards and, in many cases, reluctance on the part of citizens to pay ever higher taxes. Government also has to be more competitive in the face of other potential suppliers in areas like transport, communications and energy. It must show it can do the job it sets out to do. That is why governments across the OECD have responded by setting goals and shifting the emphasis of government management and budgeting away from how much money to spend towards what is actually being achieved.

At the same time, these developments have pushed governments to modernise their accountability and control procedures. OECD Better Life Initiative.
