Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority launches internal audit platform at Gitex Global

Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority (ADAA) partnered with more than 30 government entities from Abu Dhabi under one digital platform in alignment with the emirate’s digital transformation agenda at Gitex Global.

The authority launched its internal audit platform for government entities of Abu Dhabi, aiming to raise the efficiency of auditing in the emirate in order to help spread the values of integrity, accountability and transparency in preserving public funds.

The body aims to ensure compliance to preserve public funds and assets and thus enhance the quality of government operations, and as part of that mandate, has created its internal audit platform for official audit and auditor data in various government entities in Abu Dhabi to define the organisational and operational guidelines of internal audit units, based on a set of rules including confidentiality of information, preparation of risk assessment, internal audit plans, and adoption of an internal audit strategy, among others.

An ADAA spokesperson said: “The authority is implementing a range of strategic initiatives that stem from its strategy to enhance the noble values of transparency, accountability and integrity, and to preserve public funds and assets across all Abu Dhabi government entities. The launch of this innovative smart platform contributes to bringing together all government institutions and entities under the authority on one single platform, following the vision and digital agenda of the Abu Dhabi government.”

The spokesperson added: “The platform will maintain a database of the entities’ internal audit units, contributing to raising the quality and efficiency of the relevant information on these entities with regards to their risk assessment results, monitoring the extent to which they adhere to the rules of auditing as issued by the Authority, aiming to improve the quality of work performed and achieving the desired objectives.”

The platform enables the internal audit units of the subject entities to add data and upload supporting documents. The Auditing and Monitoring Sector at ADAA then reviews the data and communicates with these units in case of any inquiries or clarifications required and prepares the audit units’ database for the entities.

In recent news, ADAA announced it’s finalising the implementation of the fourth stage of the financial disclosure system for senior Abu Dhabi government employees.
