In an effort to support the unique needs of the public sector, The IIA provides information tailored specifically to public sector internal auditors and their stakeholders.
This information is intended to further clarify the importance of the public sector audit activity to effective governance, and it defines the key elements needed to maximize the value that audit activity provides to all levels of the public sector.
"With strong representation from all parts of the globe, the Public Sector Committee is well positioned to contribute to the further development of the internal audit profession. We are committed to providing helpful thought leadership and insights that address the peculiar needs of internal auditors, audit committees, legislators, and other stakeholders in the public sector."

Public Sector Committee
The IIA’s Public Sector Committee (PSC) is a volunteer group focused on developing guidance to serve the needs of internal auditors in the public sector. In 2011, the PSC was moved under the oversight of the Professional Guidance Advisory Council, a group that also oversees the IIASB and PIC, providing a more formal and consistent development process.
The PSC's role is to serve the public interest by:
- Influencing and providing thought leadership and advice to The IIA and its international committees and Institutes on public sector auditing matters.
- Promoting the interests of The IIA’s public sector audit members.
- Providing authoritative positions and comment on, or support matters relating to the public sector auditing profession.
