Ninth Forum for INTOSAI Professional Pronouncements
Tashi Tobgay, Assistant Auditor General is attending the Ninth Forum for INTOSAI Professional Pronouncements (FIPP) Meeting in Bali, Indonesia from 26-30 November 2018. He represents the Royal Audit Authority, the Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) of Bhutan in the FIPP. He was appointed as a member of the FIPP by the INTOSAI Governing Board, following open call nominations to member SAIs around the world.
The FIPP refers to the International Organisations of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) body designated for assessing and approving professional pronouncements. It consists of experts who have been appointed to act in the interest of the full INTOSAI membership and promote public-sector auditing of a high quality to the benefit of users of SAI audit reports and the general public.
It is intended that the FIPP would strengthen INTOSAI as an international standard setter and drive the continued development of appropriate standards for public-sector auditing world-wide. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the FIPP to ensure the content and technical quality of the full set of professional standards and approves their inclusion in the framework before they are presented to the INTOSAI Governing Board and the Congress for final endorsement.
The 68th meeting of INTOSAI´s Governing Board in December 2016 had approved establishment of the Forum for INTOPSAI Professional Pronouncements (FIPP) as an INTOSAI permanent body, constituting fifteen members selected on the basis of technical knowledge, competencies, experiences and contribution to the INTOSAI community.
