With Federal Foreign Office of Germany We Support Certification Training of Montenegrin Public Officials
We implement internationally recognized professional qualification program Training and Certification of Internal Auditors in the Public Sector (TIAPS). Its curriculum focuses on public sector internal audit systems and responds to the requirements of EU accession processes. TIAPS program in Montenegro has been since 2012 co-funded by German Stability Pact for South-East Europe. Peter Riedel, German Ambassador in Slovenia shares his views about involvement of German government into the project:
“Responsible and transparent use of public funds is not only a key element of good governance but also a cornerstone of trust in democratic institutions. Efficient internal auditing is an essential instrument for attaining this objective and thereby supporting the efforts made by Western Balkan countries to comply with EU standards.
This is why the German Foreign Office is glad to contribute, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia, in the CEF’s program »Training and Certification of Internal Auditors in the Public Sector (TIAPS) in Montenegro« for the fifth year in a row. Since 2012, several cohorts of young auditors have received specialized education within this framework, and Montenegro’s current position as one of the frontrunners among candidate countries is the best proof that the considerable funds from the German »Stability Pact for South-East Europe« have been well invested.” Source: CEF Annual Report 2017
