Print page

Comprehensive renewal is at the core of the NAOF’s strategy. This gives us the capacity to prepare for the future and react quickly to changes in the world around us. We can have an impact on society by sharing our visionary approach, by cooperating with our stakeholders and by actively sharing knowledge.

Our tasks

The National Audit Office of Finland is an independent authority that audits central government finances, evaluates fiscal policy, and oversees election campaign and political party funding. Some of the tasks of the National Audit Office are to secure Parliament’s ability to use its budgetary powers and ensure that central government finances are managed in a lawful, transparent and profitable manner. The NAOF audits central government finances and compliance with the state budget, secures transparency of election and political party funding, as well as monitors fiscal policy, aiming at sustainable and stable general government finances and understandable fiscal policy rules.
