WORK PACKAGE 1: Assessment of the WGEA Products and Planning for the Future
The INTOSAI WGEA has published 33 guidance materials, research papers and training materials in 1998– 2016, and nine additional materials in 2017–2019. However, these products seem to be underutilized to a certain extent. Work Package 1 aims at mapping the existing materials, assessing their present relevance, making them useful for the current projects, and identifying future topics. One proposed action for the subgroup is to create a long-term strategy for the INTOSAI WGEA. The INTOSAI WGEA will also plan the schedule for the update of INTOSAI documents focusing on the environment.
Work Package 1 has been divided into three targets: analysis on the WGEA products and audits, plan for the future and planning the proper timing for the update of GUID 5202 and other GUIDs on environmental auditing.
