July 2012: Cowater Awarded Project to Support Strengthening of the Office of the Auditor General of Nepal

Cowater this month signed a contract with the Office of the Auditor General (OAG) of Nepal, which will see the firm once again engaged in institutional strengthening of the OAG of the Himalayan Kingdom. Cowater and its local partner firm will contribute to enhancing the quality of financial statement audits; upgrading the OAG’s capacity to conduct performance audits; and improving the impact of audit through technical support to the Public Accounts Committee Secretariat. The Cowater-led team expects to mobilize in August 2012 for a 30-month period; this is Cowater’s second World Bank-funded assignment in the area of institutional strengthening of the Office of the Auditor General of Nepal. This latest project builds on Cowater’s experience with more than 20 Offices of the Auditor General worldwide – including assignments in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Vietnam, the Philippines, Jamaica and many others.
