Opening Plenary - Auditing -- the Importance of Independence and the Value of Accountability

The promise of government auditing is that vital audit functions can improve public accountability and enhance decision-making in their jurisdictions.  This session will explore some of the threats to audit independence as well as the strengths that audit offices can leverage to ensure they work objectively.  We'll consider recent examples of audit work -- as well as challenges auditors face -- to move our offices and professions to the most independent stances to add the most value to our governments and the public we serve.
