Our work covers all devolved public sectors in Wales - including health and social care, local and central government, fire service, national parks, agriculture, education and community councils.
The Auditor General and the auditors he appoints in local government are the independent statutory external auditors of most of the Welsh public sector. They are responsible for the annual audit of the majority of public money spent in Wales, including the £15 billion of funds that are voted on annually by the National Assembly. Elements of this funding are passed by the Welsh Government to the NHS in Wales (over £5 billion) and to local government (over £4 billion).
The Wales Audit Office aim is that the people of Wales know whether public money is being managed wisely, and public bodies in Wales understand how to improve outcomes.
Most of our work is published in audit reports on individual public bodies as well as reports on specific value for money studies and topical issues.
