The OECD initiative called Auditors Alliance, is hosting a virtual meeting on ‘Audit Innovation in Times of Crisis’on 23 September 2020, 13:00-15:00 (CET).
This meeting comes at a time when the COVID-19 crisis has forced governments to take unprecedented measures to tackle both the immediate effects and long-term fallout of the crisis. Internal and external auditors are having to find new ways to audit governments’ COVID-19 measures, and fast. Despite the challenges, these circumstances also create an environment that stimulates creativity and innovation. In this virtual meeting, we will explore the impact of the crisis on audit innovation and reflect on the valuable lessons we can take from the management of the COVID-19 crisis for the future. We will welcome speakers from Audit Wales, the Board of Audit and Inspection of Korea, the Office of the Auditor General of South Africa, the U.S. Government Accountability Office, and the Office of the Comptroller General of Brazil.
