Mrs. Namana Gulrukh Fareed
Pakistan Audit and Accounts Academy is the premier institute of the Department of the Auditor General of Pakistan mandated to provide both induction level training and in-service training to the establishment of the DAGP as well as to provide policy input to the higher management. PA&AA is the sole gateway for training the officers who seek career in Pakistan Audit and Accounts Service to carry out the statutory duty as laid down in the constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
Specialized Training Programme, an induction level training, is the flagship programme of Pakistan Audit and Accounts Academy. New entrants after entering into civil service are transformed into professional civil servants with adequate knowledge of the principals and techniques of modern finance, accounting and auditing. PA&AA is also responsible for conducting continuous professional development courses at local and international level. To fulfill this responsibility, PA&AA is reinvigorating its trainings by including new and emerging audit areas.
Pakistan Audit and Accounts Academy is veteran in imparting trainings on the latest improvements in the public financial reporting standards and new dimensions of public sector auditing. Training modules are being customized to impart the most relevant and quality training to enable the DAGP to fulfill the constitutional mandate of reliable financial reporting and objective audit of the public expenditure in order to contribute towards improved financial decision making at policy level.
Advent of information technology in every sphere of business is a real challenge at present. Establishment of the Center for information system auditing (CISA) in PA&AA is the first step towards training of information systems auditing. PA&AA and its four regional academies are fully equipped with training facilities and faculty. Thus, PA&AA is ever committed to contribute in realizing the vision of the Auditor General of Pakistan.
