Comptroller General of the Republic of Chile

It is an honour for me to take over as the Chairman of the UN Panel of External Auditors. I look forward to the continued support of the Vice-Chair, Mr. Jorge Bermúdez, Comptroller General of the Republic of Chile and all other Panel members. Together, we strive to achieve the Panel’s objective of greater degree of collaboration and coordination, and exchange of information on audit methods and findings.

The UN Panel of External Auditors is a distinctive forum 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 United Nations has embarked on the new reform agenda, the Panel will be uniquely placed to consider the impact of these reforms and to provide its observations.

As external auditors to the United Nations and its Agencies, we need to continue to ensure that our work adds value to the management of our client organizations, contributing to their increased efficiency and effectiveness.
