Deputy Chief of Staff Maj.- Gen. Yair Naveh pledged to the Knesset’s State Control Committee on Sunday that an internal auditor for the IDF would be appointed before the end of the year.

It will be the first time the military has such a post.

Committee chairman Ronnie Bar-On (Kadima) said the IDF has taken too long to appoint an internal auditor.

“This is an issue that has continued for 15 years,” he told Naveh. “And in 2005, the state comptroller issued a report on the matter to the chief of General Staff. This matter could have been decided upon and carried out long ago.”

Naveh told the committee that the IDF currently undergoes internal review by two units, a civil division and a military division, both of which operate under the auspices of the defense auditor.

Bar-On said that the coalition would closely monitor the progress of the internal auditor’s appointment.

“It’s not acceptable that the internal auditor’s appointment was delayed until now,” he said.

The State Control Committee is expected to hold an additional hearing on the issue before the end of the year.
