The OLACEFS Capacity Building Committee (CCC) is pleased to announce that, in the context of its 2015 Annual Operating Plan and in order to contribute to the strengthening and modernisation of SAIs in order to improve their work relating to government control, it is scheduling three on-site courses.

This academic activity addresses the need for training of those SAIs that have made requests, developing a course in their own headquarters and oriented to auditors, officials and professionals. These courses are taught by specialists from other SAIs.

Given the budget for this activity, the selection of beneficiary SAIs has taken into account two tools – Detecting Needs and Identifying Supply, 2015, in which SAIs expressed their specific training needs, and the selection criteria which are established in the Committee’s Procedures and Functions Guide.
