The concepts of internal audit and internal auditor are included in our public administration with the Public Financial Management and Control Law No.5018, which regulates the structure and operation of public financial management. In the article 63 of the Law No. 5018, internal audit is defined as an independent, objective assurance and consultancy activity, conducted to evaluate and guide whether resources are managed according to the principles of affordability, effectiveness and efficiency in order to add value and improve the work of the public management.
Within this context, as per article 63 of Law No. 5018, an internal auditor was appointed to our Agency in 2017, and the Internal Audit Section was established in 2019. Although the Internal Audit Section reports directly to the Senior Manager, it carries out its activities under the supervision and assessment of the Internal Audit Coordination Board of the Ministry of Treasury and Finance.
