16 December 2021: “Working with Parliaments, in particular Public Accounts Committees“
In many countries Parliaments are our key stakeholders. When our financial audits are produced, when our performance audit reports are published, their impact is increased substantially if the parliament receives the audits and uses them to hold the government to account. Exploring working with parliaments’ whose PACs are relatively new, we heard Mr. Nejib GTARI, First President of the Court of Accounts Tunisia and Mr Ilir Salihu, Deputy Auditor General.
