Support IT related Standards and Guidelines

ITWG Chair

INTOSAI IT related standards and guidance are developed by the INTOSAI Working Group on IT Audit (WGITA). The ITWG members were active in providing feedback to draft WGITA GUIDs during 2017-2020; the ITWG Secretariat provided support through disseminating related information.

The integration of the ISSAIs into the new framework of INTOSAI professional pronouncements (IFPP) in 2016 had a direct impact on the references contained in the IT(A)SA documents. SAI Switzerland has updated the documentation accordingly during 2017-2020.

In 2020, EUROSAI ITWG and INTOSAI WGITA Secretariats agreed to collaborate on the update of IDI-WGITA IT Audit Handbook and exchanged views. Virtual meetings were held with the attendance of interested ITWG members in September and November 2020 to discuss the Handbook revision process in cooperation with U.S. GAO (project leader in WGITA).
