SAO presentation at the meeting of the Vienna chapter of the G77
The State Audit Office of Hungary made its second visit within a week to the United Nations Office in Vienna. The aim of the visit was to promote the application of László Domokos for the position of external auditor of UNIDO. Propagation of the application was supported by the Permanent Mission of Hungary to the United Nations and Other International Organizations. The attendance at the meeting was also made possible by the Permanent Mission of Hungary in Vienna. Besides the State Audit Office of Hungary experts from the Supreme Audit Institutions of Germany and Ukraine also presented their application for the position of external auditor of UNIDO.
We firmly believe that our expertise in national and international audits, gained good practices, newly developed methodology taking into account also international standards, outstanding professionals and commitment to quality are such strengths on the basis of which the SAO could successfully contribute to UNIDO’s strategic goals and could foster accountability and transparency in UNIDO’s finances. Besides auditing, we would like to strengthen the principle of ‘good governance’ in the everyday practice of UNIDO. Final decision on applications will seemingly be made in December 2013.
