Auditor of Senatorial Accountability
The Imperial Senate has responsibility for allocating and spending the treasury. They do this by appointing individual Senators to oversee projects from building a shipyard to raising an army. They also disburse funds to worthy causes such as the Anvil hospital or toward the creation of valuable tools for the Empire. In all such cases, it is the responsibility of the chosen individual to ensure that the funds are used wisely and for the purpose they are intended.
The powers of the Auditor were extensively amended by the Imperial Senate in Spring 381YE.
The Auditor of Senatorial Accountability is charged with ensuring that funds allocated to Senators by the Imperial Senate are spent wisely and for the purpose for which they were intended. The findings of the Auditor should be reported to the Senate.
Right of Address
The Auditor has the right to make an address to the Senate once per summit. This is intended to allow them to present important information for the Senators consideration. To use this power, the Auditor informs the civil service that they wish to address the Senate. Their address will be added to the agenda for the next Senate session.
Inquisit Member of the Senate
Once per summit, the Auditor may call an inquisition against any member of the Senate (including The Throne) without the need for a vote in the Synod. This is in addition to any existing judgements they have raised normally. This use of the power may be escalated to a Condemnation just like any other inquisition. To use this power, the Auditor must still place a judgement before the Synod, but it is considered to pass automatically at the point it is presented.
