The Office the Auditor General (OAG) through its five years strategic plan as aligned to NDP4 and Vision 2030 is embarking on an external stakeholder survey that is geared towards ensuring quality and satisfactory delivery of services. The OAG will embark on this endeavour by fully involving all its stakeholders: National Assembly, Public Sector Entities (Audit Clients), Professionals & Industry Experts and General Public. It is against this background that we wish to engage with you/your institution to conduct a research about your perception of the services provided by OAG during the period 10th of August 2015 to 30th of September 2015. This research will be done in the form of a survey questionnaire and will be facilitated by a survey team. The office assures you of the anonymity and confidentiality of your responses. Your objective responses are welcomed, whilst the information collected will be used to formulate strategies and better measures to improve the impact and value of the oversight function on Public Financial Management.
