Germany backs auditor training programme in Montenegro

12 Feb 15
The German government has backed a joint CIPFA training programme for public auditors in the Western Balkans with a €200,000 grant.

CIPFA, Slovenia’s Centre of Excellence in Finance (CEF) and the Ministry of Finance in Montenegro have jointly created the Training of Internal Auditors in the Public Sector (TIAPS) scheme.

The programme, which will run throughout 2015 and 2016, will provide public sector auditors in Montenegro with skills and tools to run transparent and efficient administrations and will be supported by both the German and Slovenian government.

CIPFA hopes that, once the project is complete, it will run independently and sustainably in the Balkan country.

The grant agreement, signed by the German Embassy in Slovenia and the CEF last month, is the third for the TIAPS programme.

CIPFA’s Giles Orr said: ‘CIPFA is extremely pleased that our comprehensive training programme has garnered the full support of the German government.

‘We are dedicated to empowering practitioners in public finance and it is welcome news that we can make strides, working with our partners, to ensure stable and sustainable governance practises in Montenegro.’

He added that the German ambassador to Slovenia had said the project is ‘highly appreciated’.
