Performance auditing is an important building block with which to improve accountable and responsive governance of public resources. As government programs continue to grow in magnitude and complexity, public sector auditing has evolved and extended its scope beyond mere ﬁnancial or compliance audits to the auditing of performance to support policy makers in their oversight role.
