Tunisia: Initiating Support for the Court of Accounts and Public Controllers

In October, NCSC expanded assistance to two new counterparts under the Increasing Accountability in Tunisia Program. At events held on October 9 with the Association of Tunisian Public Controllers and October 17 with the Court of Accounts, NCSC highlighted the importance of inter-institutional collaboration and a holistic approach to countering corruption and financial crime, including the prevention and detection, investigation, prosecution, and adjudication of final crime cases.

Public control institution representatives, speaking at the October 9 event, reiterated their commitment to the restructuring of their institutions that will standardize public audit practices and optimize resources for the effective prevention of corruption and mismanagement of public funds. 

On October 17, the President of the Court of Accounts emphasized the critical role of the Court of Accounts, a leader in the Arab world, in the prevention of corruption and mismanagement of public funds.
NCSC is working with the Association of Public Controllers to support unification of the three public control institutions and to build capacity of public controllers to harmonize procedures with international standards, facilitate implementation of new competencies, improve performance management, and plan for the digital transformation of archives. 

The Increasing Accountability in Tunisia Program is implemented by NCSC and funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) and the U.S. Embassy in Tunis.
