The Grant will support the Audit Bureau to enhance its independence and objectivity through reviewing its legal and institutional framework and recommending polices to bridge identified weaknesses.
The Project will strengthen the Audit Bureau capacity in performing audit of specialized areas that is currently lacking the needed capacity and knowledge.
These specialized areas are: financial audit, and Private Public Partnership (PPP) megaprojects audit, including procurement audit that comply with international good practices.
