PASAI/PFTAC Regional workshop on Strengthening Oversight Functions of PFM through internal and external audits
- This Program objective is to improve internal audit and external auditing functions to contribute in strengthening the oversight functions of PFM. The proposed program is a regional workshop that will be conducted in collaborative partnership with PFTAC working together to strengthen member countries in the Pacific Region. The direct beneficiaries of the Program will be the 7 SAIs Fiji, PNG, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu and Cook Islands. For six of these countries the internal audit function is part of the Ministries of Finance and Cook Islands has outsourced this function to a private sector firm. This will contribute to achieving SP3 “High quality and timely audits”.
- Target participants from 7 SAIs with Internal audit functions.
- 2 participants from each of these 7 SAIs.
- This Program objective is to build the knowledge and skills of SAIs staff on issues relating to, and including auditing of, the management of public assets. The proposed program will be a regional workshop on Asset Management and include the development of training materials specifically on asset management and the delivery of this workshop to 25 PASAI member participants. In particular participants will learn how to plan, conduct and implement an audit program on public sector assets which may result in audit recommendations that will be implemented by government agencies and ultimately strengthen public asset management practices. The project will benefit all SAIs and comes under Strategic Priority 3: “High quality audits completed by Pacific SAIs on a timely basis”.
- Target participants – Head of SAI or Senior Officer.
- ALL SAIs will be invited.
Member SAIs participating in the implementation of the SAI PMF lite self-assessment tool will be reporting back on progress at this meeting.
