The president and vice-president of the Federal Audit Court (TCU), minister Ana Arraes and minister Bruno Dantas, met, on August 6, with the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE), ambassador Carlos Alberto France, to deal with the organization of the International Congress of Supreme Audit Institutions (Incosai).

“I would like to invite the minister to participate in the XXIV Incosai, which will take place in November 2022, in the city of Rio de Janeiro. This will be a very important event for Brazil and the support of the MRE is essential for us to hold the best event possible”, said Minister Ana Arraes, when opening the meeting.

The Brazilian chancellor thanked him for the invitation and stated that Itamaraty is at the disposal of the TCU to help organize the congress: “I would like to thank you for the opportunity and say that it is with great honor that I accept the invitation to participate in such a relevant meeting. We can establish a work plan and work together on operational, logistical and other issues”.

The meeting was attended by the Secretary General of the Presidency of the TCU, Adriano Amorim, and the Secretary of International Relations of the Court, Anahi Pereira. For the ministry, the head of the Rio de Janeiro Regional Representative Office, Ambassador Márcia Maro, and the Secretary of Internal Control, Ambassador Marcos Leal Raposo Lopes, were present.

Recognition – The International Congress of Supreme Audit Institutions (Incosai) is the supreme body of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (Intosai). It brings together members, associates and affiliates of the entity, for the purpose of making strategic decisions.

The meeting takes place every three years and is headed by the president of the Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) of the country where it is held. The last one was in Moscow (Russia), in 2019. The next one will be in November 2022, in Brazil.

On that occasion, the Court of Auditors will assume the presidency of Intosai for the triennium 2022-2025. “Intosai’s presidency begins with the organization’s world congress. This is a source of great pride for us”, said minister Bruno Dantas. “Historically, the relationship between TCU and Itamaraty is one of collaboration. The support, expertise and strategic vision of the MRE will help us to manage Intosai in favor of the Brazilian State, obtaining good results for the greater insertion of Brazil in the international scenario. We are very happy with this partnership.”

The vice president of the Court also highlighted that, in recent years, the TCU has experienced “a special moment” in terms of its relationship with the other SAIs. “Currently, we occupy the vice-presidency of Intosai and preside over the organization’s main committee – the Professional Standards Committee, which discusses, approves and disseminates auditing rules that are international quality parameters. This is our partners’ recognition of the work we have been developing”, reiterated Minister Bruno Dantas.

Russia-Brazil Cooperation – The current president of Intosai, the Chamber of Accounts of the Russian Federation has also made itself available to the TCU to support the transition to the presidency of the organization. The initiative was signaled at the meeting with the Russian SAI that took place in July, in which the minister Ana Arraes and the secretary Anahi Pereira participated.

One of the legacies of the Chamber of Auditors on leaving Intosai’s presidency is the University of Intosai (U-Intosai), which aims to respond to the need of the international audit community to consolidate the capacity building activities of the entity’s bodies and institutions. One of the platform’s expansion proposals is to provide courses created by TCU and expand the offers in Portuguese.

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!
