The Ministry of Finance and the New Zealand government signed the implementation of a new audit management system at the ministry’s office yesterday.

The NZ High Commissioner, Mark Ramsden, said the new computer-based software would help streamline and automate the audit process which is led by the Internal Audit Division of the ministry.

“New Zealand has provided a grant of approximately F$620,000 to purchase specialised audit software, upgrade associated hardware and support to the salaries of the two new technical staff who are being brought on to help implement the system over the next two years,” he said.

The ministry’s director, Mereani Naisara, said the audit management software would make the functions of the Internal Audit Division compliant with the international standards for the professional practice of internal auditing.
