A very warm welcome to the Office of the Auditor General (OAG). This is the Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) of Zimbabwe whose vision is to be the centre of excellence in the provision of auditing services. The SAI or OAG is manned by a vibrant workforce whose core values are commitment, respect, empathy, accountability, teamwork and integrity . The SAI aspires to be relevant by keeping abreast with current global trends in finance, auditing and other relevant disciplines. It also sustains this relevance by producing informative and timely reports with practical recommendations.
The SAI of Zimbabwe also demonstrates accountability and transparency by having its financial statements audited by an external auditing firm of chartered accountants. Thus, the SAI also walks the talk.
In a bid to fully professionalise, the SAI has chosen to focus on the current three professional auditing qualifications, namely : Chartered Accountants of Zimbabwe (CA(Z)), Certified Public Accountants of Zimbabwe (CPAZ) and Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Therefore all new auditing recruits are expected to embark on any of the three professional auditing programmes. This approach should continuously maintain the competence, experience and skills of the SAI and hence produce quality reports in a timely manner to the satisfaction of our stakeholders. The SAI of Zimbabwe is a life learning institution and aims to ensure accountability and transparency in the public sector.
