This study aims to determine the effect of workload and compensation on the performance of auditors at the State Audit Board of South Sumatra Province. In this study, the number of samples was 100 respondents from the Supreme Audit Agency's Representative Office of South Sumatra Province. The statistical tool used in this study is multiple linear regression using analysis media in the form of the IBM series 22 Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) program. The results of this study show: (1) Workload has a positive and significant effect on the Examiner's performance as Supreme Audit Agency Representative of South Sumatra Province; (2) The provision of compensation has a positive and significant effect on the performance of the Auditor at the State Audit Board of South Sumatra Province. The workload given by the agency can be done quickly and on time because the Examiner always tries and is ready to complete all his duties and responsibilities. However, it should still be necessary to increase the number of examiners following the assigned job map and workload so that the work results can follow the expected quality standards.
