The review pays special attention to improving co-ordination at the national level and with the regions, cultivating a culture of integrity in the public administration, and enabling effective accountability through internal control and risk management.

Taking a risk-based approach to strengthen integrity and mainstream internal control in the Colombian public governance system

This chapter highlights the added value of a robust, contemporary internal control system in mitigating the challenges of allocating scarce resources and delivering impact for Colombian citizens. Risk management is the driving force behind governments’ efforts to deal with uncertainties and threats, including fraud and corruption risks, which hamper the achievement of the strategic objectives of public organisations. The internal audit’s role is to provide reasonable assurance that management systems and defence arrangements are properly set to address low performance, wrongdoing, fraud and corruption.
