INTOSAI General Secretariat takes part in the 16th session of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA)

The 16th session of the UN Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA) took place at the UN Headquarters in New York from 24 to 28 April 2017. INTOSAI, which holds an observer status with CEPA, was represented at this event by Ms Silke Steiner from the INTOSAI General Secretariat.

The 16th session centred on the theme "Ensuring effective implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals: leadership, action and means" and provided an opportunity for experts from public administration and observers of CEPA to deliberate the demands placed on public administration regarding an effective implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The representative of the INTOSAI General Secretariat presented to the attendees the four approaches defined in the INTOSAI Strategic Plan 2017-2022, based on which Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) can make a significant contribution to the effective implementation of the SDGs. She also outlined the corresponding frameworks adopted by INCOSAI XXII, which are currently being developed.

The four approaches aroused great interest among the members of CEPA, as well as the important role of SAIs in implementing the SDGs in general.
