photo1

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:

INTOSAI Competency Framework revised

Guide – Pathways for Professional Development of Auditors in SAIs

Please also find the TFIAP report to the CBC steering committee 2019 here:

TFIAP dashboard report to CBC SC 2019

And the final external research on professional pathways:

Final report sent to GIZ_27-11-2018


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.
