AI, multilingual approach important for efficient auditing: CAG

New Delhi, October 5, 2023 

“Knowledge is the cornerstone of proficient public auditing, ensuring precise, consistent, credible, and efficient audits. It fosters a culture of ongoing improvement by identifying potential risks,” said Comptroller & Auditor General (CAG) of India Girish Chandra Murmu on Thursday while inaugurating the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions’s (INTOSAI) 15th Knowledge Sharing Committee meeting at Abu Dhabi.

The INTOSAI is a global community of supreme audit institutions dedicated to promoting good governance and public accountability. Highlighting the significance of KSC, CAG Murmu stated, “INTOSAI’s ambitions resonate in the operational strategies of Knowledge Services Committee (KSC), amplifying visibility, fostering inclusivity, and nurturing the growth of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAI) through a robust knowledge-sharing ecosystem.” According to the statement, Murmu urged members of SAIs to lead in auditing, employing innovative strategies like multilingual approaches, artificial intelligence, and online collaboration tools.

“In addition to the KSC meeting, Murmu held bilateral meetings with the SAIs of Egypt and UAE. Discussions with SAI Egypt focused on cooperation in multilateral forums to advance public sector audit. Talks with SAI UAE explored the potential for a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and mutual collaboration, particularly in Infrastructure and IT audit with a focus on capacity building, the statement said. Murmu also chaired and inaugurated the INTOSAI’s 32nd annual Working Group on IT Audit meeting.
