Strengthening public finance oversight – How can the state and internal auditors cooperate better?

With the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway, next week on May 19th, we are organizing the conference “Strengthening public finance oversight – How can the state and internal auditors cooperate better?”

This meeting of state and internal auditors, first of a kind, is organized with the cooperation with the State Audit Institution (SAI) and Ministry of Finance.

Our intention is to emphasize the need of strengthening the cooperation between SAI and the system of internal audit. We will gather the representatives of external and internal audit, with the aim to talk about future previous cooperation, point out to the potential problems and obstacles and finally, to agree upon the direction of the future cooperation.

In the introductory part of the conference, the speakers will be:
