WGEI | Working Group on Audit Extractive Industries
The Working Group on Audit of Extractive Industries (WGEI) was established at the XXI Congress of the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (INCOSAI) held in Beijing, China, October 2013 with SAI Uganda as the Chair.
WGEI was formed in response to the need expressed by the INTOSAI-Donor Steering Committee based on survey results which indicated numerous challenges in auditing extractive industries including; technical complexity of the sector, capacity building needs, retention of specialized staff and limitations in SAIs mandate to audit extractive Industries.
The main objective of the Working group is to "promote audit of extractive industries within the INTOSAI community in order to support good governance and sustainable development for the UN post 2015 agenda".
The scope of the Working Group, as agreed by members, covers oil, gas and solid minerals.
