Task Force on INTOSAI Auditor Professionalization (TFIAP)
In 2016 the INTOSAI Governing Board established the Task-force on INTOSAI Auditor Professionalisation (TFIAP) to do development work on the concepts of auditor competence in INTOSAI.
The two key deliverables that the TFIAP committed to produce in the period 2016 to 2019, were the updated competency framework and the new guide on pathways for professional development. Please find them here:
Please have a look here: TFIAP Journey timeline
In the period 2020 to 2022 the TFIAP will focus on the following work areas:
- Developing three professional pronouncements on auditor competence for inclusion in the INTOSAI Framework of Professional pronouncements (IFPP)
- Providing access to competency profiles for positions other than audit in a SAI
- Supporting the revision of the CBC guide on human resource management practices.
