Takimi me OSBE

The Auditor General of the Republic of Kosovo, Vlora Spanca, hosted the Head of Democratisation Department of OSCE, Childerik Schaapveld.

In the meeting, Mrs. Spanca informed Mr. Schaapveld for the audit work and extended her thanks to him for the ongoing cooperation between OSCE and NAO. On the other hand, Mr. Schaapveld congratulated Mrs. Spanca for taking office, considering the NAO as a valuable partner for OSCE.

The importance of continuing the cooperation between NAO and OSCE, particularly on further development of the NAO work with the Assembly and local government institutions, was another topic addressed in the discussions of today’s meeting. Special emphasis was given to raising of awareness and understanding of the role and mandate of NAO, the importance of the audit process, as well as increasing the impact on implementation of audit recommendations. This cooperation aims at enhancing good governance and transparency.

Moreover, both parties agreed that the reviewing and supplementing of the legal framework on the Auditor General and the National Audit Office is necessary in order to have it aligned with international audit standards and to be able to increase the number of performance and risk-based audits.
