Q-n about the meeting

Ambassador Kelly Degnan: This was a very informative and interesting meeting with the Auditor General, looking into the importance of accountability and transparency in the government institutions. USAID and the United States have been working with the State Auditor’s Office since 2011 on building this capacity, and it is truly inspiring and reassuring how much progress the Auditor’s Office has made. The very high international standards that this Auditor’s Office has reached and the work that they are doing in trying to help all of Georgia’s institutions provide the public with greater accountability, greater transparency in the way they operate, the way they handle funds.
