Auditing international organizations
One audits international organisations as well, and one often calls upon national supreme audit institutions to expand their scope of work and to perform the duties of auditors of international organisations. They also award those positions on a competitive basis, with SAIs competing with each other.
The role of an international auditor helps supreme audit institutions to expand the range of traditional professional topics and develop knowledge that is expedient for the performance of the direct objectives of the State Audit Office, that is, fostering the efficiency of Latvian public administration.
Representation of the State Audit Office in the audit structures of international organisations is both a confirmation of the professional capacity of the State Audit Office and a tool for further professional growth of the State Audit Office.
The activity of the State Audit Office as an auditor of international organisations is one of the directions for achieving the strategic goal of the State Audit Office of becoming an internationally recognised centre of competence for public sector auditing.
