Development of Value for Money Audit for Water, Environment, Health and Education Programmes, Brazil
The Tribunal de Contas da Uniao (TCU) is the supreme audit body within the federal government of Brazil. Its traditional role has been to review the accounts and financial transactions of government departments and to ensure that these comply with the laws of the land. In recent years, in line with global audit developments, the TCU has diverted more resources to reviewing the results of government expenditure. This project helped the TCU to develop expertise in value for money (VFM) audit (or performance audit) so that it can now review the economy, efficiency, effectiveness and equity in the use of government funds.
