Office of the Accountant General (Audit), Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram was formed in March 1984 consequent on the reorganization of the erstwhile office of the Accountant General Kerala into Audit and Accounts offices as a part of restructuring of the Indian Audit and Accounts Department. This office was subsequently upgraded to Office of the Principal Accountant General (Audit). From September 2004, a new office titled Office of the Senior Deputy Accountant General (Local Bodies Audit and Accounts), Kerala started functioning, which was subsequently upgraded to Office of the Accountant General (Local Bodies Audit and Accounts). Some time during this period, another office titled Office of the Accountant General (Works, Forest and Receipt Audit) was also formed.

Consequent on a major restructuring with effect from  April 2012, these offices were restructured into two offices following sector-wise audits.  They are Office of the Accountant General (General and Social Sector Audit), which is primarily responsible for the Audit of accounts of the Departments/ Agencies/ Public Sector Undertakings/ Autonomous Bodies grouped within General and Social Sector in the Government of Kerala; and Office of the Accountant General (Economic and Revenue Sector Audit), which is responsible for the Audit of accounts of the Departments/ Agencies/ Public Sector Undertakings/ Autonomous Bodies grouped within Economic and Revenue Sector in the Government of Kerala.  While these two offices were constituted exclusively for audit relating to the Government of Kerala, audit pertaining to Central Government offices functioning in Kerala was handed over to the region-wise newly formed office titled Office of the Director General of Audit (Central), Chennai with a Branch Office at Kochi.  This Branch Office is responsible for the audit of expenditure and receipt of all Central Government units located in Kerala including Autonomous Bodies.  The cadre control of all the staff members posted in these offices lies with Office of the Accountant General (General and Social Sector Audit), Kerala.
