The Accounting and Auditing Reforms in Public Oversight and Quality Assurance project developed a series of reports through June 2019 under the Financial Sector Reform and Strengthening (FIRST) Initiative, by a team from the World Bank Centre for Financial Reporting Reform (CFRR). The reports’ aim is to help operationalize the accounting and auditing mandate for Public Oversight, and Quality Assurance, in Kosovo.

The FIRST Initiative is a multi-donor partnership that aims to support economic growth and poverty reduction in low- and middle-income countries by promoting robust and diverse financial sectors.

Project features

The project approach was centered into two components:

  • Component A: Developing structural elements for sustainable Public Oversight and Quality Assurance System for Kosovo,
  • Component B: Developing manuals, based on international best practice, that support Public Oversight and Quality Assurance processes.
