Saudi Institute of Internal Auditors and Global Institute of Internal Auditors sign cooperation agreements
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 17 - 09 - 2021

,The Saudi Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA–KSA) and The Institute of Internal Auditors Global (The IIA) signed today cooperation agreements to enhance collaborative efforts in internal auditing and control systems, supporting the profession and its practitioners in the Kingdom in accordance with the highest international benchmarks and frameworks and the latest profession developments issued by The IIA.
President of the General Court of Audit and Chairman of the Board of Directors of IIA–Saudi Arabiam, Dr. Hussam bin Abdulmohsen Al-Angari, Chairman of the Global Board of Directors of The IIA, Charlie Wright, President and CEO of The IIA, Anthony J. Pugliese, and CEO of IIA–Saudi Arabia, Abdullah bin Saleh AlShebeili, attended the signing ceremony at the headquarters of The IIA in Florida, USA.
Dr. Hussam Al-Angari stressed the significance of the collaborative agreements and their role in establishing a solid and appropriate legal and regulatory base for the professional practice of internal auditing in Saudi Arabia as an integral part of governance efforts in the Kingdom. Dr. Al-Angari urged all concerned institutions operating in different sectors to empower internal auditors in accordance with the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) to enhance governance and transparency and improve the operational results of its entities, achieving objectives of the Saudi Vision 2030, which aims to optimize levels of performance, transparency, and good governance.
"These agreements will enhance the pivotal role of internal audit in effective governance, risk management, and internal control through setting global benchmarks, research, policy development, and thought leadership in the profession under the supervision of IIA–Saudi Arabia," Dr. Al-Angari said.
Anthony J. Pugliese highlighted the importance of these agreements signed between The IIA and IIA–Saudi Arabia, underpinning the expected impact on the internal audit profession in terms of developing, maintaining, and strengthening the IPPF. The IPPF includes mandatory and authoritative ethical and technical standards and global guidelines for the internal audit profession, as well as for the development, maintenance, and promotion of the Internal Audit Competency Framework, which defines the knowledge, technical skills, and behaviors necessary for professional internal auditors to perform their work, share experiences, and conduct joint research projects and activities on issues of common interest, including holding consultations, seminars, and conferences on professional issues of internal auditing. Pugliese praised the leading role of activities driven by IIA–Saudi Arabia to develop the internal audit profession.
CEO of IIA–Saudi Arabia Abdullah AlShebeili clarified that the agreements will enhance the roles of IIA–Saudi Arabia in the internal auditing profession in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by maximizing training and professional development opportunities for internal auditors at every stage of their career path; designing joint internal audit training programs; and promoting and supporting The IIA's Internal Audit Practitioner designation, which targets new auditors.
"As per the signed agreements, both parties will cooperate to develop training modules and accredited certificates to support organizational governance at all levels in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and working together to translate internal audit materials and programs to Arabic, including COSO ERM Certificate, COSO Internal Control certificate, CRMA, and The IIA's CIA Learning System, which prepares individuals to earn the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), the only internationally recognized certification in internal auditing," AlShebeili added.
