BC's first Auditor General for Local Government has now set up office in Surrey.
Basia Ruta will carry out performance audits of local government operations and will provide recommendations on economy, efficiency, and effectivness.
Ruta's only been on the job three days and says her first order of business will be to meet with local governments in coming weeks.
"Our focus in this office is on value for money on performance audits, is the operation approach we're looking at, has that been managed with due regard to efficiency, economy, and effectiveness?"
The office was first suggested by BC business groups to provide an extra level of accountability and transparency for taxpayers.
