In a statement released Friday, 31 May, the governor said he was delighted that Mr. Swarbrick wished to continue in his role.
“I believe that over the past three years he has done an excellent job, proving himself to be a robust defender of proper accountability for public finances and providing a clear lead to the staff of the Auditor General’s office.
“The Auditor General’s role is a critical one in government and Alastair brings a wealth of experience to it. I have every confidence that he will continue to carry out his duties to a high standard and to add value to the Cayman Islands government operation,” Mr. Taylor said.
Mr. Swarbrick first took up the post on a three-year contract in July, 2010, replacing the former auditor general Dan Duguay. His existing contract was due to expire on 11 July. The new contract becomes effective 12 July.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to serve another three year term as the Auditor General of the Cayman Islands,” said Mr. Swarbrick Friday. “I look forward to working with the new government to support the ongoing work to improve public accountability and transparency.”
