In November, later this year, the Federal Court of Accounts – Brazil (TCU) will take on the chairmanship of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI). The institution is autonomous, independent, professional, and apolitical and has, among its objectives, to act as the recognized voice of the Supreme Audit Institutions (SAI) worldwide.

In addition, he presented Brazil’s plans as chair of the international organization for the period 2022-2025, in order to identify possibilities for joint actions. SAI Brazil’s Minister was accompanied by the Secretary-General of Intosai, Dr. Margit Kraker, and by heads of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAI) from the following countries: Dr. Harib Al Amimim, United Arab Emirates; Mr. Hesham Badawy, Egypt; and Mr. Jorge Bermúdez, Chile.

The agenda with representatives of the United Nations continued Thursday, May 26th.

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!
