The Director General Audit (DGA) was responsible for the provision of an effective internal audit service in the Department of National Defence. Audit is an objective, independent third party that exists for the accountability of the methods applied and the results produced by the Deputy Minister and Chief of Staff Committee. Examples of DGA audit topics are the management of military moves, cost recoveries in relation to foreign military training in Canada, and contracting for construction engineering services. The DGA was known as the Chief Auditor's Branch until 1965, at which point it became Director of Audit, which became Directorate of Operational Audit before becoming the DGA.
