In line with the Office of the Inspector General’s Charter, which states that the OIG is subject to periodic independent review against prevailing international standards and best practices, the OIG undergoes a triennial external assessment, surpassing the international standard which requires an external assessment every five years. The latest such assessment took place at the end of 2021 by IFACI Certification, an independent firm appointed in consultation with the Audit and Finance Committee.
The assessment identified areas for the OIG to improve, including amending its charter to formalize existing practices, and improving the internal process around agreeing management actions. An action plan has been developed to address these areas.
This most recent External Quality Assessment report [ download in English ] is now made publicly available after its submission to the Audit and Finance Committee of the Board of the Global Fund at its 18th meeting in March 2022.
