CBC Guides and Occasional Papers
At the INTOSAI Capacity Building Committee meeting in Stockholm in 2015, a working group was
established to propose a plan for the management of CBC guides and occasional papers, in preparation
for CBC’s engagements with the Common Forum on this issue.
About the workstream
The INTOSAI CBC Meeting in Stockholm in 2015 established a working group to manage the CBC guide series. The aim of the series is to share good practices related to managing SAIs. The guides are not intended to duplicate or substitute the work of the Professional Standards Committee on ISSAIs.
The work stream is responsible for:
• Management of the production and maintenance of CBC Guides
• Management of the production and maintenance of Occasional Papers
• Monitoring the continued relevance of individual guides and updating or removing these as necessary;
• Identifying new products to include on the website where deemed relevant;
• Commissioning blogs on capacity building of SAIs; and
• Developing a dissemination strategy to increase the impact and use of the guides and other publications.
