US GAO’s International Auditor Fellowship Program

Beneficiary level: Global
Project status: Ongoing
Duration from: 2018-03-21
Duration to: 2018-07-13

In 1979, the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) established the International Auditor Fellowship Program as a demonstration of support for INTOSAI’s objectives and as a means of promoting improved accountability practices globally.  Each spring, GAO welcomes multiple participants into a four month comprehensive program wherein the Fellows learn how GAO plans, executes, manages, and communicates the results of its work.  Throughout the program, the Fellows enhance their skills and professional competencies, develop networks, and are also exposed to leadership development training, all designed to be transformative for the individual participants and their respective SAIs.
