The growth of the constructive role of public financial control in management is a logical consequence of the modernization of the established system of state financial control and necessitates an update of the ideology and paradigmatic principles of state financial control. A retrospective review of the theoretical and practical aspects of the methodology and organization in the state financial control of Ukraine suggests that in the scientific environment these issues are studied extensively. However, despite the scientific and practical value of these works, the question of the possible modernization of the modern system of state financial control in the conditions of Ukraine’s integration into the world economic system remains unresolved for the time being and is still the subject of lively discussions. The subject of the study is theoretical and methodological principles and methods for the implementation of state financial control, as well as the results of the activities of the State Audit Office of Ukraine for 2017. The purpose of the study is to substantiate the theoretical positions of the system of state financial control in Ukraine, to analyse the activity of the State Audit Service of Ukraine for 2017, and to suggest ways to improve it. To achieve the research goal, the following questions are addressed and solved: the analysis of the activity of the State Audit Service of Ukraine was carried out, based on the results of which the financial impropriety and state of its elimination for 2017 were described; the analysis revealed an increased attention to the organization of an effective system of financial control of budgetary institutions, the continuous improvement of mechanisms of management and control over budgetary funds. Method. To achieve the defined goal, a complex of general scientific and special methods was used: the method of system analysis and complex structures formalization; generalization and scientific abstraction; statistical method of data processing, grouping method. Results. However, despite the scientific and practical value of these works, the question of the possible modernization of the modern system of state financial control in the conditions of civilization and formation transformation of society through the establishment of paradigmatic principles of public audit, which are already typical of most highly developed countries of the world, remain in Ukraine today finally unresolved and still the subject of lively discussions. Conclusions. An important requirement for the construction of a modern system of state financial control at all levels of management is the implementation of control on the basis of ensuring a clear interaction and coordination of efforts of all participants in financial and budgetary relations to solve tasks of state financial control. The modern system of public financial control should be designed in such a way that it can be quickly and effectively adjusted to the solution of new challenges. Thus, only the complex realization of the measures specified in the study will provide the best effect from their introduction.
