The IIA Partners With the World Bank to Offer Risk Based Audit Training in Jamaica
The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) is partnering with World Bank and the United Nations (UN) to strengthen public sector internal auditing in the Caribbean during a two week training session beginning Jan. 20 in Kingston, Jamaica. The IIA’s Learning Solutions team is conducting two of the scheduled 10 days of training for approximately 30 internal audit and finance professionals in the public sector, and will remain onsite for an additional three days to help participants develop an audit plan focusing on risk criteria.
IIA Global Chairman of the Board Paul Sobel traveled to Kingston to lend support for the World Bank’s Risk Based Audit Training Pilot Program. He and UN Under Secretary General Carman LaPointe, a former chairman of The IIA, addressed an audience of more than 80 permanent secretaries, course participants, senior officers, and others at the evening’s formal kick-off event Jan. 21. “On behalf of IIA Global, I am honored that I could be a part of this important initiative,” said Sobel. “The IIA is proud to partner with the World Bank to help strengthen public sector internal auditing through this pilot program, and we look forward to future collaboration opportunities.”
