Generation and Collection of Revenue in the Fisheries Sector
The report on Fisheries Revenue states that the audit was motivated by the fact that the country loses approximately $30 million due to illegal fishing. Concerns that the county is losing out on revenue motivated the performance audit on the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources.

Examination and Monitoring of Vehicles by SLRTA
The performance audit report on the Examination and Monitoring of Vehicles by SLRTA was carried out as a result of the persistent increase in the number of road accidents in the country.
Performance Auditors from ASSL visited examination centres to obtain relevant data and information on the operations of SLRTA in relation to the Examination and Monitoring of Vehicles.
