Auditor General, Mr.Gamini Herath submitted his annual report for 2019 to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Hon.Roger Mancienne, as required under Article 158 of the Constitution.

The report bring out the findings arising from the audit of government accounts for 2019 and various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) undertaken during the previous audit cycle.

This is the fourth consecutive year for which the report has been submitted before the end of December statutory deadline.  However, Auditor General feels that the report could have submitted little earlier had it not been for the impact of COVID-19 situation.

The activity report and audited financial statements of OAG for 2019 was also submitted to the Speaker under Section 26 of the Auditor General Act. This report was due by the end of June, however, delayed due to the COVID-19 situation which impacted not only on the operations of OAG but also the external auditing of the OAG.

Also present on the occasion were the Deputy Speaker, Hon Gervais Henrie and Clerk of the National Assembly, Ms Tania Issac.

Auditor General wishes to thank all stakeholders who have facilitated realization of the reports and looking forward to continued support in the future.

A special thank goes to the staff of Office of the Auditor General (OAG) for their continued support and dedication despite constraints.
