cooperation in the sphere of PIFC at the leadership level of the regional CRO
and RSA, which were expressed during the opening of trainings.
In the course of
the work the Polish experience in the sphere of introduction of internal
control and internal audit in public authorities, basic concepts of internal
control and internal audit according to the COSO model, standards of internal
audit, and the main stages of organization and conduction of internal audit as
a process were presented to participants.
Ukrainian experts had an opportunity to share thoughts and to receive answers on
their questions concerning organizational and practical aspects of public
internal audit. The process of implementation of the European model of PIFC in Poland especially interested participants
because the Polish experience is very close and clear to Ukrainian people and way
of Polish colleagues is not so far: Poland
passes ahead Ukraine
on some 7 - 8 years in the sphere of reformation of PIFC.

September in Kiev,
and in late September practical realization of pilot projects on internal audit
