International co-operation

The NAO considers the studying of international experience an effective means for enhancing its professional capacity and further bringing its audit methodology up-to-date with the ISSAIs  framework.

To fulfil the objective of achieving higher standard of quality of its audits the NAO seeks to

  • further develop its professional contacts within the framework of INTOSAI,  EUROSAI and  the Contact Committee through active participation in common activities, working groups and conferences, as well as participation in co-ordinated and parallel audits with other supreme audit institutions (SAIs);
  • exchange experience through broadening and developing  bilateral cooperation with other supreme audit institutions;
  • follow modern developments in the audit profession, analyse and disseminate internally the international experience and good practice.

 

 


 

 

 

The International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) operates as an umbrella organisation for the external public sector audit community. For more than 60 years it has provided an institutionalised framework for supreme audit institutions to promote development and transfer of knowledge, improve public sector auditing worldwide and enhance professional capacities, standing and influence of member SAIs in their respective countries.

INTOSAI is an autonomous, independent and non-political organisation.

The National Audit Office of the Republic of Bulgaria has been a member of INTOSAI since 2001. It is represented in the following working groups

  • Working Group on Environmental Auditing;
  • Working Group on Key National Indicators;
  • Working Group on Public Debt.      

 

The objectives of the Organisation of the European Supreme Audit Institutions (EUROSAI), are to promote professional cooperation among SAI members, to encourage the exchange of information and documentation, to advance the study of public sector audit and to work towards the harmonisation of terminology in the field of public audit.

The National Audit Office of the Republic of Bulgaria joined EUROSAI in 2002. It participates in the activities of the following working groups:

  • Working Group on Environmental Auditing;
  • Working group on IT Audit;
  • Working Group on the Audit of Funds Allocated to Disasters and Catastrophes.
