Moral integrity in a defense system as perceived by the state comptroller: The case of Israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Since January 1, 1950, the State Comptroller has been responsible for carrying out the audit of the Israeli defense system, after the Ministry of Defense (MOD) transferred its Auditing and Inspection Division to the State Comptroller's office. The Israeli State Comptroller began to publish reports dealing with cases of breaching the principles of moral integrity in his 5th Annual Report, relating to the fiscal year 1953-54. A survey by the State Comptroller's Office published in the year 1989 shows that from 1953 until 1988, 91 issues were defined as matching a state of "infringement of moral integrity." Data collected from reports submitted by the Comptroller and Auditor General of the United States, as well as his Canadian colleague show that these two prominent Auditor Generals have also dealt with infringements of moral integrity in the American and Canadian defense system in recent years.
