Baseline Study: Governance Reform in the Internal Audit Function at the Inspectorate General, Ministry of Public Works

IndII Activity P243-02: Governance Reform in the Internal Audit Function (IG-MPW) is a strategic, long-term and high profile engagement between the Governments of Indonesia and Australia and represents a significant step towards improving governance, oversight, accountability and transparency within the Ministry of Public Works (MPW) and to train a cadre of internal auditing professionals for long-term sustainability. Given the levels of investment and the long-term duration of assistance, a baseline study was completed in April 2012. The baseline involved 124 auditors (51 percent male and 49 percent female). The objective of the study was to collect and analyse information relating to management efficiency and oversight; practice of internal auditing; procurement and anti-corruption functions; and their understanding and application.
