This project has strengthened and modernized the public sector and build technical capacity to improve public administration and public financial management. It has also supported Sri Lanka’s evolving poverty reduction strategy, which includes the growth, governance, improved service delivery, and social inclusion objectives.
On Improving Auditing Standards, the component addressed weaknesses in the financial management of public resources, the effectiveness of the public audit function, and the availability of public access to information. The component’s action plan was based on the Auditor General’s Department (AGD)’s IDP. To modernize AGD, elements of the component focus on human resource (HR) development, communications and external relations, auditing methodologies, new office building and IT equipment.
