Global Public Sector Insights

​Global Public Sector Insights

In an effort to support the unique needs in the public sector, The IIA provides information tailored specifically to public sector internal auditors and their stakeholders. While Global Public Sector Insights are not considered authoritative guidance as part of the IPPF, they are intended to further clarify the importance of the public sector internal audit to support effective governance and define key elements needed to maximize the value that audit activity provides to all levels of the public sector. The Global Public Sector Knowledge Group is in process of reviewing the Global Public Sector Insights to incorporate into Practice Guides specifically for the Public Sector. For access to all guidance currently available to support public sector internal auditors, please see the Supplemental Guidance page.
