Medical Officer (CMO). Program implementation is done through its District Chief Medical
Officer's office, Blocks, Community Health Centres (CHCs), Primary Health Centres
(PHCs), Sub- Centres (SCs), Arogya Raksha Samities and Village Health & Nutrition
Sanitation Committees. Certain activities may be managed at the State level such as drug
procurement, IEC, civil works, training using specialized entities such as SIHFW, IEC

funds to DHS for programme implementation and in turn, DHS release funds to field
establishments/units like PHC, CHC, VHSC, ARS etc., Monthly SoEs from the various
implementation units are consolidated at the taluk level for onward submission to DHS. At
DHS, SoEs received from the taluks are consolidated along with expenditure incurred by the
DHS for onward transmission to SHS. At SHS, SoEs received from the DHSs are
consolidated along with expenditure incurred by the SHS for onward transmission to GoI.

         To ensure compliance with laid down systems, procedures and policies
         To regularly track, follow up and settle advances on a priority basis
         To assess & improve overall internal control systems

Scope of Audit
The responsibilities of the concurrent auditors should include reporting on the adequacy of internal
controls, the accuracy and propriety of transactions, the extent to which assets are accounted for and
safeguarded, and the level of compliance with financial norms and procedures of the operational

Appointment & Selection of Auditors
      Appointment and selection of the state level concurrent auditors will be done by the respective

      advertised through a central advertisement at the state level. Terms of Reference should be
      provided to all firms in order to receive their Technical Bids.
      Interested firms should submit their bids in two parts- Technical and Financial bids. Both the
      bids should be submitted in two separate sealed envelopes, which should be opened in meeting
      of the audit committee.

      criteria as prescribed in the advertisement.

      If the lowest financial bidder does not agree to undertake the audit work within the prescribed
      audit fee or the audit committee deems it unfit for any reason (reasons to be recorded in
