Governance structures of international organizations
There is one Supreme Audit Institution in almost every country in the world. In Latvia, it is the State Audit Office. All 196 Supreme Audit Institutions are united in the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions INTOSAI. INTOSAI has five regional organizations, and the State Audit Office is a member of EUROSAI.
The professional and active work of the State Audit Office has been noticed and appreciated at the international level. Following competitive procedures the State Audit Office has been elected to governing and other bodies of the INTOSAI and EUROSAI.
This representation facilitates the State Audit Office’s and Latvia’s international recognition and goodwill and enables us to use this international cooperation platform and mandate entrusted to promote the inclusion of strategic and professional interests in the agenda of international organizations and their respect in decision-making.
The participation of the State Audit Office in the EUROSAI Governing Board and INTOSAI FAAS, helps the State Audit Office in achieving its goal - to become an internationally recognised centre of excellence for public sector auditing.
Participation in the structures of these international organizations is a confirmation not only of the professionalism and of competence of the State Audit Office, but also of the way in which the State Audit Office is able to ensure the world-class quality of work in Latvia.
