Independent External Audit of the financial year 2019

The independent external auditors, appointed by the BoG from senior members of national supreme audit or other suitable institutions of IACA Parties, formed a collegial body of three and conducted the audit from February to May 2019. Independent external auditors to date came from Austria, Indonesia, Pakistan, the Russian Federation, and Thailand. All external auditors act in their personal capacity and enjoy functional and organizational independence in conducting the audit. Following the approval by the BoG, the findings of the Independent External Audit were also presented and taken note of at the organization’s annual Assembly of Parties.

Scholarships

IACA offers a limited number of scholarships generally for students from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) as defined by the United Nations, and for citizens from IACA State Parties, listed under the World Bank Classification of Countries by Income as the Lower-Middle- and Upper-Middle-Income Economies. These highly competitive scholarships are merit based and they fully or partially cover the programme fee.

In 2019, IACA offered 105 full and partial scholarships to students and participants of its academic programmes and open trainings courtesy of the Siemens Integrity Initiative, Philip Morris International, and IACA’s scholarship fund. The highly qualified candidates benefiting from these scholarships represented the following countries: Afghanistan, Argentina, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Bolivia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, China, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Georgia, Guatemala, India, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Republic of Korea, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, as well as the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.

105 full and partial scholarships

To further support scholarship provision, IACA has continued to offer courtesy shares instead of courtesy gifts, where the value indicated on the shares is dedicated to IACA’s scholarship fund for empowering professionals. The money is used to subsidize the participation for nationals from less privileged parts of the world in IACA’s programmes. Direct contributions to the scholarship fund are also possible.
