The vice president of the Federal Audit Court (TCU), Minister Bruno Dantas, participated last Tuesday (11/23) in the 75th Global Meeting of the Board of Directors of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (Intosai).

The meeting, held virtually, was led by the President of Intosai, Aleksei Kudrin, of the Supreme Audit Institution (SFI) of the Russian Federation. The entity’s secretary general, Margit Kraker, from the EFS in Austria, supported the holding of the meeting, counting the votes. In addition to these, SAI members from several countries participated, including Saudi Arabia, the United States, South Africa, India, Norway, Chile, Cameroon and Tunisia, representing Intosai’s regional committees and bodies. For the TCU, the head of the Secretariat of International Relations (Serint), Anahi Maranhão, and the director of International Cooperation, Paula Hebling, were present.

Incosai – In his opening statement, Minister Bruno Dantas presented the report on ongoing operational actions for the XXIX International Congress of Supreme Audit Institutions (Incosai) in 2022. “I am aware that the pandemic is still a serious cause for concern all around the world. Even with the acceleration of the vaccination process, the situation is not under control and it is still not sure when we will be able to travel and meet in person at a big event like Incosai. Even so, there is optimism, and TCU is making progress in organizing the event. We will continue to discuss with the Intosai General Secretariat the options and repercussions of possible [future] scenarios,” she said.

The congress is the supreme body of Intosai and brings together the full members, associates and affiliates of the organization. The 24th edition of the meeting is scheduled to take place in Brazil, from November 7th to 11th next year. After the congress, the Court of Auditors will assume the position of president of the entity, remaining at its head until 2025.

Communication Strategy – Bruno Dantas highlighted that communication is an area of ​​special interest and should be one of the priorities of TCU management in the management of Intosai. To start this process, the minister proposed the creation of a task force to update Intosai’s Communication Strategy (dating from 2010) and to provide guidance on the use of the organization’s websites and brand.

The initiative was unanimously approved during the meeting. And he received recognition from the representative of the SAI from Saudi Arabia, Hussam Alangari: “I would like to recognize the commitment of the vice president of Intosai, Bruno Dantas, for creating a Communication Strategy for Intosai and for proposing a task force to implement it,” he said.

PSC Presidency – The minister also presented an overview of the activities report of the Professional Standards Committee (PSC). Since 2016, the TCU has held the Presidency of the PSC, which is responsible for the framework of professional auditing standards.

Current Presidency – Opening the meeting, Intosai President Aleksei Kudrin noted that the Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of some principles of the Moscow Declaration, approved in 2019, during the XXIII Intosai. Among them: the need to apply new audit models, the use of new technologies for data analysis and the promotion of digital education.

Kudrin also highlighted the creation of the Intosai University (U-Intosai), approved at the 74th meeting of the entity’s Steering Committee, in November 2020. According to him, so far, 52 courses have been held in seven languages, 17 in Portuguese, 14 in Russian and seven in Spanish.

Presidente do Tribunal de Contas da União – Brasil (TCU)

É com grande satisfação e honra que o Tribunal de Contas da União sedia, no Rio de Janeiro, o XXIV Congresso Internacional das Entidades Fiscalizadoras Superiores, a ser realizado em novembro de 2022.

O encontro acontece em um momento crucial. O mundo foi severamente atingido pela pandemia da Covid-19. Neste cenário, embora ainda não haja prazo para a crise ser totalmente superada, a importância da cooperação internacional se destaca cada vez mais.

Essa é uma crise que não tem fronteiras e, consequentemente, as soluções para resolvê-la também não podem ser realizadas de forma isolada. Juntos, podemos trabalhar e contribuir concretamente para atender com mais assertividade e qualidade às demandas de nossas sociedades.

O Incosai reúne, a cada três anos, representantes das Entidades Fiscalizadoras Superiores (EFS) de todo o planeta, para uma semana de debates e intercâmbio de melhores práticas. O objetivo das discussões é o aprimoramento do controle externo e da auditoria pública em um mundo em constante transformação.

Os desafios são muitos, mas acredito firmemente no sucesso do Congresso, sob a liderança do TCU, para ouvir a voz de todos e compartilhar os resultados com vistas ao benefício mútuo.
A realização do evento e a liderança da Intosai implicam benefícios que vão além da integração e da troca de experiências. Esse é um encontro que proporciona o desenvolvimento de ferramentas e de iniciativas que, no longo prazo, beneficiam a organização e a comunidade como um todo.

Frente a esse cenário desafiador, mas promissor, faço um convite a todas as EFS: envolvam-se, participem e tragam suas visões, dúvidas e dificuldades para o debate do XXIV Incosai.
Esta é uma oportunidade ímpar de ampliar a voz global da Intosai!

Estou segura de que a cooperação, o esforço conjunto e o empenho da nossa comunidade internacional de auditoria pública resultarão em um Congresso bem-sucedido, que gerará resultados concretos para os cidadãos de todo o mundo!

President of the Federal Court of Accounts – Brazil (TCU)

It is with great pleasure and honor that the Federal Court of Accounts – Brazil (TCU) hosts the XXIV International Congress of Supreme Audit Institutions, to be held in November 2022, in Rio de Janeiro.

The event takes place at a crucial time. The world has been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Even though we still cannot predict when this crisis will be overcome, this scenario highlights even more the importance of international cooperation.

This crisis has no borders and, consequently, the solutions to solve it cannot be carried out individually. By standing together we can work and contribute concretely to meet the demands of our society with more assertiveness and quality.

Every three years, INCOSAI gathers representatives of Supreme Audit Institutions from around the world for a week of debates and exchange of best practices. These discussions aim to improve external control and public auditing in a world in constant transformation.

The challenges are many, but I firmly believe that under the TCU’s leadership the Congress will succeed in listening to the voice of all and sharing the results, with a mutual benefit in mind.

The upcoming event and INTOSAI’s leadership imply benefits that go beyond integration and the exchange of experiences. This is a meeting that provides the development of tools and initiatives that, in the long run, benefit the organization and the community as a whole.

Given this challenging but promising scenario, I extend an invitation to all SAIs: get involved, participate and bring your visions, doubts and difficulties for debate at the XXIV INCOSAI.

This is a unique opportunity to amplify INCOSAI’s global voice!

I am confident that the cooperation, joint effort and commitment of our international public audit community will result in a successful Congress that will bring forth concrete results for citizens around the world!
