Towards the Existence of Public International Law of External Control – OLACEFS Regional Seminar (2014) 2-3 event days

Beneficiary level: Regional
Project status: Proposed (Expression of interest)
Duration from: 2014-10-01
Duration to: 2014-10-03
Total budget (US Dollar): $80000

This proposal, put forward by SAI Uruguay, focuses on identifying the existence of Public International Law of Fiscal Control (PIL of FC), which could form the basis of a legal framework for the implementation of international audit standards, thereby giving OLACEFS and its member SAIs a powerful tool to promote ISSAI implementation. It specifically focuses on UN General Assembly resolution A/66/209 as the possible basis for PIL of FC. The proposal is to hold a regional seminar on the topic, based on a preliminary questionnaire completed by member SAIs, and to engage an expert to discuss the concept of Public International Law, how it comes into being and how it works. Additionally, the seminar is also proposed as an opportunity to examine the impact on SAIs of recent changes to national legislation across OLACEFS, and to prepare a regional diagnosis regarding legal instruments hindering or helping the work of SAIs, to inform future OLACEFS strategies. Funding is sought to cover the costs of seminar venue, and travel and accommodation costs of the legal expert, staff from CER members, and one participant from each SAI in OLACEFS.
