Our Organization

Employees of the Office of the Provincial Auditor are employees of the Legislative Assembly; we are not members of the public service of Saskatchewan. Our Office employs approximately 60 people and proudly serves as a training office supporting the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation.

The Office has a Support Services Division and four operating divisions—Health, Finance, Education, and Environment and Infrastructure each with an assigned portfolio.

The Provincial Audit Team

The Office’s employees are its most valuable resource in the delivery of quality and timely products and services to its stakeholders. To have the right balance of skills, knowledge, and expertise, the Office needs professional staff with a mix of financial and non-financial related skills.

Approximately one-third of the Office’s employees, in addition to being professional accountants, have other training or hold non-accounting designations (e.g., human resources, risk management, information systems audit, pension plan administration, internal audit, public administration).

Creating and maintaining an environment that encourages and rewards ongoing learning is crucial to the Office’s success. The Office supports employees in broadening their knowledge and skills through their participation and leadership roles on relevant provincial and national committees (such as professional accounting bodies and legislative audit forums) including the Canadian Council of Legislative Auditors, Institute of Chartered Professional Accountants of Saskatchewan, Institute of Internal Auditors of Canada, and Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Saskatchewan.
