UZBEKISTAN: Launching an e-platform “State Audit”
In accordance with the Decree of the President of Uzbekistan on August 27, 2021, the Chamber of Accounts launched a special e-platform“State Audit”.
Its priority objective is to streamline inspections in public organizations, increase the effectiveness of audit control and reduce the human factor.
Starting from January 1, 2022, all public financial activities, including internal audit services, are compulsorily registered in the “State Audit” e-platform.
At the same time, the executive officer of the organization under inspection will have an opportunity to check the validity of the control activity by means of a QR code. Carrying out control activities without pre-registration in the e-platform is not authorized, and such activities are declared illegal.
The newly launched e-platform provides protection of the interests of public organizations. It prevents the occurrence of repeated inspections and illegal interference in their activities.
Public organizations will be able to put their written opinion about the accomplished financial control into the e-platform and assess the results of the control activities.
This, in turn, will increase the objectivity of control activities and the responsibility of auditors.
