The office of Accountant General Sindh is part of Controller General of Account. It provides an independent nonpartisan Financial Statement of Government of Sindh and Appropriation of Accounts and act as Financial Advisor to Government of Sindh. The AG Sindh derives functional powers from Controller General of Accounts Ordinance 2001. These powers include authorizing expenditure after applying pre-audit checks. However, certain expenditures of Sindh Government are by passed from pre-audit checks. Therefore, AG Sindh receives such accounts from concerned and consolidates to prepare Financial Statement and Appropriation of Accounts. All the expenditures of Sindh Government which are pre–audited by AG Sindh are processed through SAP-ECC6 network across the Sindh Province. In order to provide door step service to the public, there are 21 District Accounts Offices besides one Treasury Office and AG Office at Karachi. The District Accounts Offices are being manned both by AG Sindh officials and Finance Department. Presently staff ratio between AG and Finance Department at District Accounts Offices is 20:80. The Treasury Office at Karachi is also working under administrative control of Finance Department.
The AG administration believes in team work and striving to achieve excellence in Financial Management through computerized environment. It provides computerized pay and allowances to the entire regular and contract employee of Government of Sindh and maintains their service record. It provides IT services to GP Fund subscribers and Pensioners. Our next goal is to bring all the historical pensioners information on Direct Credit System by March 2016.
