The body was initially established under the name National Supervision Board at Magelang, Central Java during the United States of Indonesia period on 28 December 1946.[2] The Board currently functions under the latest revision to the laws governing it dating to 2006.[2][3] The Board has increasingly tackled environmental issues, revealing in 2014 that the Ciliwung River had been polluted by seventeen separate companies, submitting its report to the police.[3]

As of 2015, the Audit Board of Indonesia was chairing the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions' Working Group on Environmental Auditing.[3]

In 2016, Board chairman Harry Azhar Azis was implicated in the Panama Papers due to a previously registered blank company which he hadn't reported.[4] Azis claimed that the company was merely a registered name on paper which he had started for his oldest daughter, but then sold to someone else after his appointment as Board chairman in December 2014.[5]
