OFFICE OF THE AUDITOR GENERAL
Officium Recognitoris Generalis
Pope Francis on February 24, 2014, by the Apostolic Letter issued Motu Proprio
dispensator et prudens entrusted to the Auditor General the task
of auditing the Dicasteries of the Roman Curia, the institutions connected to
the Holy See or those related to it, and the administrations of the
Governatorate of the Vatican City State.
By issuing the new
Statutes on 21 of January 2019,
Pope Francis indicated
functions and competences of the Office of the Auditor General.
In addition to carrying out with autonomy and independence financial audits of
the entities of the Holy See and Vatican City State, the Office of the General
Auditor serves as the Anti-corruption Authority in accordance with the Mérida
Convention in force for the Holy See and Vatican City State since 19 October
The Office of the Auditor General also performs audits of particular situations
concerning anomalies in the use or the attribution of financial or material
resources; irregularities in the concession of procurement or the execution of
transactions or alienations; acts of corruption or fraud. In these same
situations, the Auditor General receives reports from persons who become aware of these anomalies in the course of carrying out their own
functions, and protects their identity, analyses the information and presents a
report to the appropriate Commission (whistleblowing).
The Auditor General relates functionally with the Council for the Economy to
which it submits its annual audit plan for consideration and approval, as well
as the annual report of its activities.
