Performance Audit examines the extent to which the objectives of an organisation, programme or scheme have been achieved economically, efficiently and effectively. This chapter provides the audited entity’s profile, the planning and extent of audit and a synopsis of the significant audit observations. Chapter II of this Report deals with the findings of Performance Audits and Chapter III deals with Compliance Audit of various departments.
