Albania – Improving the writing techniques of SAI Albania’s auditors, to improve audit reports (2014-15)

Beneficiary level: Country
Project status: Ongoing
Duration from: 2015-10-01
Duration to: 2016-12-31
Total budget (US Dollar): $44400
DAC Income classification: Upper Middle Income Countries

The purpose of this concept note is to improve the techniques and skills of SAI Albania’s auditors to write an audit report, as increasing professionalism in the writing of audit reports highlights the strength of audit findings, increases the implementation of recommendations and their follow-up, as well as improving the public image of the SAI. This would be achieved through a combination of classroom and on-the-job training (physically or remotely by email), development of guidance on writing audit reports (in Albanian), and a regional conference to share experiences with peer SAIs in the region. Funding is sought for the cost of international experts and their travel and stay in Albania, as well as for the regional conference.
