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:
