Management Consultancy Support to the National Audit Authority in Cambodia
The Commission of the European Union (EU) provided continued support to the Public Financial Management Reform Programme (PFMRP) in Cambodia for the period 2016-2019. The overall objective of the EU support to PFMRP was to enhance the effective use of resources and alignment of expenditure with national priorities to improve government’s service delivery and spur economic growth. The purpose of the overall EU allocation was to support the implementation of Stage 3 of the PFMRP, including activities directly aimed at strengthening the enabling environment for the reform programme. To this end, direct budgetary support was complemented by targeted institutional support from Sida and aimed at generating a conducive environment to safeguard the links to the overall governance agenda (complementary support).
This complementary programme was called Partnership for Accountability and Transparency (PAT) and its purpose was to support the Cambodia National Audit Authority (NAA) in managing the project “Strengthened Capacity in the National Audit Authority of Cambodia 2016-2019”, component 5 ‘Support to External Audit’ of PAT.
The expected results of the project were:
- A functional IT environment and intranet that supports internal and external communication and crucial office functions.
- A developed external communication policy and practice, Stakeholder Management.
- Active and professional chairmanship of the ASEAN SAI 2016-2017.
- NAA has a new long-term strategy from 2017 to direct the development.
