These two complementary workshops were delivered one after the other, in Arusha, Tanzania. Twenty-eight auditors from the National Audit Office of Tanzania (NAOT) participated. Over the first three days of the week, they explored how to collect sufficient and appropriate evidence through methods such as document review, interviews, and direct observation, and how to analyze this evidence. On the following two days, they learned about using plain language and the proper tone and balance to write clear and persuasive audit reports.
Throughout both workshops, Ken Robinson, Deputy Auditor General of New Brunswick, shared his experience on these topics as part of his office's role as a mentor to the NAOT. Including his perspective enriched the participants' learning.
The workshop participants and facilitators were honoured to have several prominent officials join them for special events during the week, including Mr. Raymond Mushi, District Commissioner for Arusha; Mr. Isidore Shirima, Regional Commissioner; Mr. Michovi, Head of Training for the Arusha District; and Mr. Ludovick Utouh, the Controller and Auditor General of Tanzania.
