Statement of responsibility

The Auditor-General's strategic intentions to 2025.

I am pleased to present the Auditor-General's strategic intentions for 2017/18 to 2024/25.

We intend to use our unique perspective and independent voice to influence the changes needed for New Zealand's public sector to operate and be accountable in ways that will meet the needs of Parliament and New Zealanders in the second quarter of the 21st century.

Many staff were involved in developing these strategic intentions. I thank them all for their contributions and commitment to the future direction of our Office. I am confident that we have a clear direction and focus so that we can contribute even more to achieving a high performing and accountable public sector that has the trust and confidence of Parliament and New Zealanders.

I acknowledge that I am responsible for the information in The Auditor-General's strategic intentions to 2025.

Signature - GS
