Audit Management Group (AMG) - IV : FAW


The Financial Audit Wing (FAW) is the central audit wing of this office. Unlike in case of local audit where the audit parties conduct audit at the auditee units, in central audit, the vouchers/ challans received from the Treasuries through the Accountant General (A&E) office are checked at the Audit Office. This is carried out by the Financial Audit Parties (FAP) supported by the Financial Audit Support Sections (FASS) in the Wing. While the FAPs take care of the voucher/challan audit, FASSs support them through audit of sanctions, follow-up of audit objections, preparation of reports and returns, etc. This audit is done with the aim of Financial Attest Audit of the Finance and Appropriation Accounts and also to support the compliance audit. The Wing is headed by a Group Officer designated as (Senior) Deputy Accountant General (AMG-IV) who is supported by three Branch Officers. These Branch Officers manage among them six Financial Audit Support Sections (FASS), five Financial Audit Parties (FAP) and one Financial Attest Audit Team (FINAT).
