Audit Objects or Entities

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. In one of the interviews with Tan Sri Dato’ Setia Haji Ambrin Bin Buang, the Auditor General, he stated that there are about 1700 GLCs. This makes a total of about 3100 public entities the AG is auditing. In any one year, only a small sample of these entities is audited. This short note shows how the audit entities’ information can be accessed through the system.
