Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:00

CCAF-FCVI is pleased to announce the official launch of CCAF Audit News!

What is CCAF Audit News?

CCAF Audit News is a tool which aims to facilitate knowledge sharing within the performance audit community in Canada and abroad on recent reports and trends in audit practices within selected audit institutions. It monitors information published on the websites of legislative audit institutions from 26 jurisdictions within the five "Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development" (OECD) countries that share the Westminster government model. These include Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. CCAF Audit News also monitors publications from the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI).

CCAF Audit News consists of two products:

The first product is an online searchable database of over 1800 public documents (reports, guides, plans, newsletters, acts, etc) that have been published since 2008 by the above-mentioned audit institutions. This tool allows you to search for reports by type of document, audit institution, government function, management activity and year. This product also allows you to search the titles and audit objectives/descriptions of all documents. The reports themselves are viewable by clicking on the report titles from your search results taking you directly to the site of the audit institution.

The second product is a quarterly bulletin called CCAF Audit News, with bulletins published every January, April, July and October. This electronic bulletin provides an overview of new documents published over the last three months and is categorized both by government function and management activity. Hyperlinks allow you to navigate seamlessly through the bulletin, allowing you to find the most recent documents in your field of interest in 3 clicks.

How often is it updated?

The CCAF Audit News database is updated monthly and is available to all CCAF members.

How do I access CCAF Audit News?

To use this tool, you will need to be registered as a CCAF member. If you are already a member and have a username and password for our website click here and log in.

The partnership between the Office of the Auditor General of Quebec and CCAF was a critical success factor in making CCAF Audit News possible. CCAF would like to thank Auditor General Renaud Lachance for his leadership inspiration and support of this project, and François Boisclair from Mr. Lachance's office for his involvement and direction in developing this capacity building tool for performance auditors in Canada and abroad.
