Strengthening the Internal Audit System’s (IAS) Capacity

Strengthening the Internal Audit System’s (IAS) Capacity, especially for payroll and procurement audits, through: (a) internal auditors’ in country training on PA; (b) capacity building for the adoption of modern audit techniques for internal auditors, and  (c) adoption of a commercial off-the-shelf system for the automation of the audit process in the IAUs.

Compliance is affected mainly by the lack of training of internal audit officers and adequate IT systems.
