Public access to information is a critical part of the democratic process, allowing people to contribute to scrutiny of government performance. The effectiveness of the relationship between the Legislature, its committees, and the Supreme Audit Institution plays a major role in the integrity of this scrutiny.

The Legislature’s deliberations on audit findings supports better public awareness of issues, improved transparency by public organisations, and more accountability from the government to the public.

This webinar will explore the value of strengthening collaborative efforts between Supreme Audit Institutions with their Legislature, Parliamentary Accounts Committee, and other legislative committees. Our panelists are:

  1.  The Honourable Tina Pupuke Browne, Leader of the Opposition, Cook Islands, member of the Public Accounts Committee;
  2.  Mr Kaleb S. Udui Junior, Minister of Finance of Palau;
  3.  Mr Andrew McConnell, Deputy Auditor-General of New Zealand; and
  4.  Mr Giovanni Fesuiai, Sector Manager, Parliamentary Group, Office of the Auditor-General of New Zealand.
