Performance Audit Wing

Message of the Director-General

Performance Audit Wing is a specialized training unit of the department of the Auditor-General of Pakistan engaged in imparting training in performance auditing for the last forty years. The Wing is committed to the highest standards of training and capacity building

We believe that future accountability pattern would largely resort to performance auditing as against any other type of audit which is more prone to examining the service delivery and governance issues

The management and faculty of PAW have firm resolve to disseminate training in such a fashion to encourage analytical and research- based thinking ability amongst the trainees thereby enabling them to undertake all kinds of complex audit assignments.

Message from the Auditor General of Pakistan

 

I congratulate the management of Performance Audit Wing for conducting the 103rd IITP. I also congratulate the participants from Supreme Audit Office Libya, Supreme Audit Office Nepal, Supreme Audit Office Turkey, State Audit Institution Oman, Office of the Auditor-General of Botswana and Pakistan Audit Department to be a part of this learning activity. Audit being the oldest and venerable state function has a history of 1000 years. However, the Performance Audit today has risen and become a large scale and a distinct practice within the last four decades. It gives the auditor an opportunity to go beyond traditional compliance issues and enable him to examine performance of the executive in a wider context. It is a modern, challenging and fascinating form of audit that requires specialized skills and standards. The relevance and importance of this distinct variant of audit is unchallenged for progressive and forward looking approach of governance. This is the reason that today world over public auditors are devoting more time to performance audit than to financial audit to fulfill the expectations of stakeholders from public audit. Indeed, the concept and its practice is highly relevant in the present day world.

In the end, I hope that this training wing will maintain its traditions of demonstrated professionalism. I would also like to recognize the efforts and the hard work which has been put in by the core team of instructors for preparation of the course and training material. I am sure that 15 days of work involving different training techniques will enhance the knowledge and sharpen the skills of auditors through this interactive educational and training program.

Thank you!

Javaid Jehangir
