Dual approach
1.
Standard-setting is a core task for
INTOSAI and underpinned by robust
structures
2.
ISSAIs are the preferred solutions for SAIs
and provides the basis for schemes of
education and accreditation that defines
public-sector auditing as a profession
3.
The ISSAIs are widely recognized and
ensures high quality audits that add value
to the public sector
