KAASS, the Kudumbashree Accounts & Audit Service Society; a home grown enterprise to ensure proper account keeping in the community network.
Each district has been furnished with a KAASS team that has been drawn from commerce graduates and is guided by professional chartered accountants. These teams have been facilitating management of accounts at the NHG, ADS and CDS levels, and pointing out to defects and rectification where ever needed. They function as a concurrent audit mechanism as well, giving inputs to the mission teams about capacity building requirements for financial management.There are over 350 members in 43 KAASS groups across the state.
The new byelaws provide for internal auditors from within the community network. These internal auditors will be capacitated by KAASS.
