Statement from the Deputy Controller and Auditor-General

3 August 2017: Acknowledging the resignation of Martin Matthews as Controller and Auditor-General.

I acknowledge Martin Matthews’ decision to resign from the role of Controller and Auditor-General. On behalf of the Office, I thank Martin for the positive contribution he made to the Office during his short time in the role.

I also want to thank my staff for their continued hard work. It has been a challenging time for all concerned.

Our Office has an important role, and our focus is on continuing to fulfil that role while Parliament carries out the necessary process to appoint a new Auditor-General.

I will be making no further comment at this time.

Deputy Controller and Auditor-General
