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, the updated competency framework and the new guide on pathways for professional development, are now available. Please find them here:
Please also find the TFIAP report to the CBC steering committee 2019 here:
And the final external research on professional pathways:
In the period 2020 to 2022 the TFIAP will focus on three areas of work:
- 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.
