Dear Colleagues!

We welcome you at the website dedicated to the Chairmanship of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation in the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI).

Assuming our position as Chair of INTOSAI we established priorities for our work and defined practical objectives. The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly made adjustments to our plans. However, it has also given us impetus to act more decisively and has brought into focus the relevance and pertinence of our plans and propositions.

At the same time, the Accounts Chamber as Chairman of INTOSAI gives a special focus to the openness of our work as a whole and as Chair of INTOSAI. We will appreciate an open dialogue as part of exchanging experiences and implementing various initiatives and projects to achieve the main INTOSAI goals and put into practice the provisions of the Moscow Declaration.

We have a lot of work to do and a lot of ambitious tasks to accomplish, and it is only together that we can achieve the goals established by the INTOSAI community and even do more than that.

Experientia Mutua Omnibus Prodest! Mutual Experience Benefits All!
