The oversight roles of Parliament can never be more emphasized than through the roles of the Committees. Other conventional procedural tools for oversight are seldom being used as compared to Answers and Questions during Question Time.

However, it is more a daunting task when it comes to financial scrutiny. In the life of the National Parliament of Solomon Islands, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) along with the Public Expenditure Committee (PEC) were given this mandate.

Besides considering the Recurrent Estimates and the Development Budget as required, the Public Accounts Committee have taken initiatives to conduct Inquiries on Tabled Papers; in particular Solomon Islands Government Financial Audit Report produced by the Office of the Auditor General.

Another aspect of providing oversight in a sense for the Committee, is to be part of economical consultations conducted by both local and international financial monitoring institutions. In the process, the Committee does not only lend its views on the management of public, donor funds and private finances, but it also gained insights on the current economical performances locally, regionally and globally.

Earlier in 2017, the Chairman of the PAC involved in two separate consultation processes conducted by the International Monetary Fund and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat. It is through the maintenance of such network that legislative financial scrutiny at the National Parliament of Solomon Islands can continuously demonstrate its credible evolution.
