The Auditor General is given the mandate to audit all government agencies and government linked companies (GLCs) where the government own 50% of the shares or have given a grant to the company. A list of government agencies can be found at http://www.malaysia.gov.my >> Direktori Agensi. We counted that there are about 1400 agencies.
