19 October 2015

The Code of Ethics of the Cabo Verde (Cape Verde) Court of Auditors is due Monday to be presented publicly in Praia, whose design and implementation was funded in full by the European Union, reported Cape Verdean weekly newspaper A Semana.

A statement issued in the Cape Verdean capital said the launch of the Code of Ethics aimed to “promote and analyse the code, exchange knowledge and experiences with the participants and identify potential gaps and opportunities in order to incorporate them into implementing regulations.”

The statement said that the success of the code required collaboration of all entities that report to the Court of Auditors, and it fitted into the project to “Strengthen Technical and Functional Skills of Supreme Audit Institutions, National Parliaments and Civil Society to Control Public finances in the PALOP and Timor-Leste “(Pro PALOP-TL ISC).

Pro PALOP-TL ISC is entirely funded by the European Union in the amount of US$6.5 million euros, of which US$6.4 million administered directly by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and aims to strengthen Supreme Audit Institutions, parliaments and civil society for external control, parliamentary oversight and public scrutiny of public expenditure and accounts with actions to be carried out over a three-year horizon (2014-2016) in all PALOP countries and Timor-Leste.
