Strengthening the Office of the Auditor General of Nepal
The project “Strengthening the OAG of Nepal” is a part of the multi donor trust fond on PFM in Nepal, administrated by the WB. The project development objective (PDO) is to enhance the quality and impact of public sector audit in Nepal. Project beneficiaries and PDO level results indicators over the 3-year implementation period of the project are set out below.
The direct beneficiaries of this project are the two highest formal institutions of accountability in Nepal: OAG Nepal and the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). The staff of OAG Nepal will be provided with hands-on support from OAG Norway supplemented by consultants financed through the project, in planning and conducting actual financial and performance audits that will be reported to Parliament. Direct support will also be provided to the PAC secretariat to conduct more efficient and effective hearings and to draft the committee reports to Parliament. Parliament—or the people of Nepal—will thereby indirectly benefit from the project. In addition, the Executive can strengthen country systems of PFM through implementation of audit recommendations. Therefore the Executive is also considered an indirect beneficiary of the project.
