The UN/INTOSAI symposia provide capacity building for SAIs (Goal 2 of the INTOSAI Strategic Plan). Through the exchange of subject-specific experiences and information in all relevant fields of public sector auditing the UN/INTOSAI symposia contribute to research and methodology development in these areas.
They have been held in Vienna since 1971 – normally in biennial intervals – jointly sponsored with the United Nations, and provide training for participants from SAIs in developing and transition countries.
The UN/INTOSAI symposia are organised by the General Secretariat. The technical programme is designed by the General Secretariat in cooperation with the United Nations.
At the interregional level 24 seminars|symposia on government auditing were organized under the auspices of the United Nations.
