A total of 32 auditors are attending six days workshop on planning ISSAIs based pilot audits on three audit disciplines of Financial, Performance and Compliance at Namgay Heritage Hotel, Thimphu. The workshop is being facilitated by three Subject Matter experts from the INTOSAI Development Initiatives (IDI), Norway.
In preparation for the said workshop, the RAA had carried out revisions of audit methodologies in the month of November 2016 and the pilot audits will be based on the revised methodologies.
