Welcome to the Provincial Internal Audit Office of Surigao del Norte website. This website was developed to provide you with information about our department.
An Executive Order (EO) No. 02 series of 2010 signed by the Honorable Governor Sol F. Matugas was issued to create the Provincial Internal Audit Office (PIAO) reporting directly to the Governor and in accordance with the provisions of Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and Civil Service Commission (CSC) Guidelines in the organization and staffing of an Internal Audit. Also, Provincial Ordinance No. 1 series of 2011 was enacted by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to supplement the said EO.
