Expanding Collaboration Between Public Audit Institutions and Civil Society

Presented in this paper from the International Budget Project are brief overviews of innovative civil society and Supreme Audit Institution practices in public auding adopted in some countries.  The overviews are followed by an analysis of the opportunities that are available for increasing collaboration between civil society organizations and national public audit institutions – as well as the challenges that these working relationships will generate.  Finally, there is a discussion of the steps that could be taken to mitigate these challenges and raise the profile and acceptance of participatory audit practices.
