The United Nations Panel of External Auditors is a unique forum for the exchange of information and methodologies to further develop and improve the value and quality of the external assurance process. We seek to support the delivery of high quality, standards based assurance, to ensure that reported financial information provides a transparent and accurate basis for the financial decisions made by the United Nations and its Specialized Agencies.

As the Secretary-General of the United Nations embarks on a new reform agenda, the Panel will be uniquely placed to consider the impact of these reforms and to provide its observations. Through our performance audit work we can support improved delivery of our audited bodies’ objectives and the process of on-going improvement.
