General Auditing Commission (GAC) acknowledges with thanks, the countless requests from civil society organizations, religious leaders, student organizations, media institutions and ordinary citizens for copies of audit reports recently released by the Commission. This growing interest of the public assures the GAC that Liberians are truly aboard the fight for greater transparency and accountability in the public service.

While the Commission sincerely wishes that every Liberian has access to hard copies of all its audit reports, the lack of adequate resources would not permit the Commission to do so. However, anyone wishing to read or download the audit reports can log onto the Commission’s website:

Additionally, copies of GAC audit reports can be found in a number of libraries and reading rooms around Monrovia.

Audit reports released on 26 March 2009 are listed below in two categories, namely forensic and regular audits.

List of Forensic Audits:

 The Special Forensic Audit Reports on the Sale of Road Construction Equipment by Consolidated Group Incorporated to the Ministry of Public Works
