To ensure efficiency and effectiveness on delivery of key services like education, health, employment etc., Government of India (GoI) has increasingly been entrusting the responsibility for delivery at local level especially at PRIs and funds are being provided directly to districts by GoI. A Performance Audit on the Socio-economic development of Sonitpur district was carried out to assess the status and impact of implementation of various socio-economic development activities in the District during 2007-12 and to evaluate whether the quality of life of the people has improved. This audit covered the developmental activities and associated expenditure in the District in respect of Social, Economic as well as General Sector schemes, provision of basic civic amenities, use of Information Technology to provide better public services and focused on the role and responsibilities of district level officials, especially the Deputy Commissioner (DC) in providing the essential public services and improving the quality of life of the people.

Audit scrutiny of social sector schemes revealed that there was comparative improvement in providing basic infrastructure in Health, Education and in coverage of supply of drinking water during 2007-12. However, there are a few areas where the district administration needs to focus its attention.
