Auditor-General’s Office releases report full of honest mistakes, learning points

Posted on 26 July 2016

Singaporeans can move on after reading it.


The Auditor-General’s Office (AGO) released its annual report for Financial Year 2015/2016 on Tuesday, July 26, 2016, that is filled with details of honest mistakes committed by all 16 ministries and eight organs of state, as well as a selected number of public sector agencies.

The discovery of all the honest mistakes and learning points for the perusal of future generations of Singaporeans occurred after the AGO scrutinised all of the financial statements and carried out spot checks.

One Singaporean, Xue Xi Dian, said: “I enjoyed reading the AGO report thoroughly as it focuses on a learn culture instead of a blame culture.”

“There are so many useful learning points from all these honest mistakes that no one will be taking responsibility for.”

Other locals said the AGO report should be required reading for all Singaporeans, especially the ruling government.

Zuo Zhen Fu, another local, said: “Then after everyone is done reading, we can all move on, because going forward, there will be many more honest mistakes and learning points for Singaporeans from all walks of life to focus on.”

“Can’t wait for AGO report 2016/2017 next year.”
