Turkish Court of Accounts (TCA) hosted the 5th Meeting of the INTOSAI Working Group

Turkish Court of Accounts (TCA) will host the 5th Meeting of the INTOSAI Working Group on Accountability for and Audit of Disaster-related Aid (AADA) on 23-27 October 2011 in ANTALYA. An important objective of the meeting will be to share the progress made on the separate tasks from the Work Programme, and to discuss the revised versions of draft guidance documents and the parallel/coordinated audits. The Working Group on Accountability for and Audit of Disaster-related Aid was established by taking into account the lack of a clear information structure and the risk of insufficient accountability for aid flows and the problem of high susceptibility to waste, fraud and corruption identified at the XIXth INCOSAI in Mexico, 2007. The Working Group has focused on the development of guidance and good practice in the area of accountability by concentrating on activities directed to stakeholders (multilaterals, aid organisations, governments, private auditors), and in the area of audit by Supreme Audit Institutions.
