NIK President and Auditor General of India discussed support for the UN

Krzysztof Kwiatkowski and Rajiv Mehrishi discussed the audit of sustainable development goals. This is currently one of the major tasks of SAIs throughout the world. On 25 September 2015 193 UN member states adopted the 2030 Agenda, which includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are to be implemented by governments, however SAI also have an important role to play in this scopes.

The currently conducted audit is the INTOSAI response to the UN expectations towards SAIs - auditors should monitor the SDG implementation in their countries. The audit objectives were elaborated by INTOSAI Knowledge Sharing Committee, chaired by the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India, in cooperation with the INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI), in which SAI of India actively participates.

NIK initiated the audit in mid-January. At the meeting President Krzysztof Kwiatkowski and Auditor General Rajiv Mehrishi exchanged information on relevant activities undertaken by the SAIs to date. SAI of India is focused on the supervision of the third Sustainable Development Goal (Good Health and Well-Being). NIK decided to apply the whole-of-government approach, which refers to a common responsibility of central, regional and local public authorities for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The whole-of-government concept increases cohesion of the public policy, innovation, effective use of available resources and synergy.

- I highly appreciate that I was provided with information on the scope and details of the audit conducted in India and that I could share data related to the audit initiated in Poland - said Krzysztof Kwiatkowski. NIK President thanked the Comptroller and Auditor General of India for 18 years of training cooperation between NIK and SAI of India, implemented on the basis of the memorandum signed in 2000 and renewed in 2015. In line with the agreement, a joint seminar for auditors of both SAIs takes place annually. Krzysztof Kwiatkowski invited Rajiv Mehrishi to the next, 18th seminar, which will take place at NIK.

Heads of SAIs also discussed the audit of international organisations. Both institutions are highly experiences in this subject matter - NIK as the external auditor of, among others, Council of Europe and the European Organisation for Nuclear Research CERN, and SAI of India as the external auditor of the United Nations.
