The Role of UNITAR on IDI's 3i Programme

 

The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) is the online training partner of the INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI) and its ISSAI Implementation Initiative Programme (3i Programme).

 

The 3i Programme aims to build capacities of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAI) to use the International Standards of Supreme Audit Institutions (ISSAI) framework as a common reference for public sector auditing in accordance with their mandate and national regulations.

 

UNITAR's role covers hosting and delivering of interactive assessments, online training and knowledge sharing using UNITAR's Knowledge Management System and Virtual Learning Environment.

 

The objective of UNITAR/IDI partnership is to train 180 audit practitioners from five English-speaking regional audit organizations to enable them to conduct ISSAI-compliant assessment in three audit areas namely Performance Audit, Financial Audit, and Compliance Audit.

 

UNITAR and IDI already have several years of successful partnership in delivering results-based, demand-driven capacity development activities through online and blended online/face-to-face courses.
