Internal Audit Captures Attention of Costa Rican President
During the final days of International Internal Audit Awareness Month, a major advocacy milestone for the internal audit profession took place in Costa Rica. On 29 May, the President of the Republic of Costa Rica Luis Guillermo Solís and his members of his cabinet took part in an event focused on the importance of internal auditing in helping to achieve greater accountability, efficiency, and effectiveness in public administration and the fight against corruption.
Nearly 200 attended the event, which took place at the Costa Rica Supreme Court of Election Auditorium and included onstage presentations by Marta Acosta, comptroller general of the Republic of Costa Rica; Gilbert Calderón, ethics attorney for the General Attorney’s Office of Costa Rica; and Fernando Mills Moodie, president of IIA-Costa Rica.
“Mr. President, you have, as your best allies, internal auditors, who carry out their administration to the highest ethical standards,” said Moodie.
