Concept Paper on the University of INTOSAI

INTOSAI University. Nurturing auditors of the future

The approval of the Moscow Declaration was one of the results of INCOSAI XXIII. Its relevance and importance of implementing its principles leaves no doubt, and it has been further emphasized during the pandemic. 

The Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation as Chair of INTOSAI acknowledges its responsibility both for the quality of adopted final documents as well as for translating their provisions into practice for the benefit of the entire audit community.

To achieve this goal, one of the priorities is to ensure openness and accessibility of knowledge accumulated by the INTOSAI community, active exchange of experience and professional capacity building as well as developing auditors’ new competencies under the established 10 provisions of the Moscow Declaration and those of follow-up documents that will be adopted at future INCOSAIs. The University of INTOSAI (hereinafter U-INTOSAI) meets this demand to a great extent. 

U-INTOSAI is an open online educational platform for all INTOSAI members that will become a unique space for exchanging experience and advanced knowledge.

U-INTOSAI will offer the entire global audit community both classical educational formats (online courses, webinars) and best INTOSAI educational projects and guidance combining existing educational initiatives to nurture auditors of the future.


Exceptional professional knowledge, as well as standards, guidelines and best practices in the field of public-sector auditing, formed by experts from the INTOSAI Goal Committees and the INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI), are now the main source of information for SAIs in the process of customizing their activities.
