Jordan -Strengthening the Capacity and Effectiveness of the Jordan Audit Bureau
The objective is to strengthen the capacity of Jordan Audit Bureau to become a well-functioning Supreme Audit Institute that is capable of providing strong and independent oversight of the use of public funds.
Specifically, the Grant will support the Audit Bureau in fulfilling its mandate, in line with the standards endorsed by the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI).
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. To ensure sustainability, the Project has train-the-trainers models and training materials that will enhance the Audit Bureau training capacity in auditing at the local level and as well the regional level through its under construction Training Centre.
