Audit Section (AUD)

Programme of Work
The programme of work is guided by a risk-based model whose objective is to ensure that audit resources are directed towards audit entities with the highest risks. The risk model identifies which entities should be prioritized by looking at a number of factors such as the size of the budget, the nature of the expenditure involved and past audit findings. Approximately 30 entities are audited on average during the biennium.

The Audit Section has the following expected result for 20102011:

  • Risk management, control, compliance and value-for-money mechanisms strengthened in UNESCO

  • Reports to Governing Bodies

  • IOS Annual Reports
  • Evaluation Section (EVS)
