The Swedish National Audit Office extends the cooperation with General Auditing Office of Liberia
The Swedish National Audit Office has decided to extend the cooperation with the General Auditing Commission of Liberia (GAC). The objective is to further strengthen the quality assurance and quality control of the audits in Liberia.
Assigned by the Swedish Parliament, the Swedish NAO manages an extensive international development cooperation with supreme audit institutions in several countries. The purpose is to contribute to democratic development and enhanced parliamentarian oversight.
The Swedish NAO has, as part of this work, cooperated with the supreme audit institution of Liberia, the General Auditing Commission since September 2018. The focus has been on strengthening the GAC’s institutional capacity and capability in various aspects of quality assurance and quality control.
The Auditor General Helena Lindberg has now together with the Auditor General of Liberia agreed that the cooperation shall continue during 2021. The focus will continue to lay on improved possibility to quality assurance and quality control.
– We have had a good cooperation with the GAC Liberia during the project period but unfortunately, we had to cancel some of our activities due to the Covid-19 pandemic. By extending the project period one year we get the opportunity to continue working together to strengthen the capacity of GAC Liberia, says Auditor General Helena Lindberg.
The international operations of the Swedish NAO
The international operations of the Swedish NAO are multifaceted. We represent Sweden internationally and have been assigned by Parliament to support the development of supreme audit institutions as part of the Swedish international development cooperation. Currently, the Swedish NAO has a bilateral cooperation with audit institutions in Africa (Kenya, Liberia, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe), South-East Europe (Kosovo and Moldova) and in Asia (Afghanistan, Cambodia and Palestine). In addition, we support three regional efforts targeting 37 audit institutions in Western Balkans, Africa and South-East Asia.
