In that regard, the general inspectorate of finance organised an awareness-raising campaign on transparency and the management of public affairs thanks to a control and audit system. The seminar which started on November 12, 2018, is to end today November 16, 2018.
The theme for this seminar co-animated by the French Institute of internal auditors (Institut français des contrôleurs et auditeurs internes-IFACI) and Côte d’Ivoire’s internal audit institute (Institut de l’audit interne de Côte d’Ivoire -IIA-CI) is " internal audit at the ministry of economy and finance and at the secretary of state to the prime minister in charge of the budget and the state treasury".
This seminar is notably aimed at sensitizing the top management, officials and general inspectors of the ministry of economy and finance and the secretary of state to the prime minister in charge of the budget and the state treasury on internal auditing. It is also organized for the elaboration of a reference framework for risk management and internal audit as well as updating risk mapping of general directorates.
In addition, to implement WAEMU’s harmonized management and the control of public finance, the country adopted a global, coherent and unique framework for conducting and assessing its 2018-2020 roadmap of public financial management reforms (Schéma directeur de la réforme des Finances publiques 2018-2020).
"This roadmap is structured around eight (8) axis of which the sixth aims at improving transparency and the management of public resources by ensuring efficiency of internal and external audits", said the minister of economy and finance Adama Koné (photo).
