The FAD conducts regular financial audits, information systems audits and performance audits for ascertaining the extent of legality, adequacy of financial prudency and management of financial operations. The objectives include reviewing of efficiency, effectiveness and economy in planning, directing, execution, controlling and monitoring of operations.
The FAD's vision is 'looking forward for more transparency, objectivity and integrity in managing public funds.'
