WGEPPP Group Meeting 2023: Save the date!

The date is set: we will meet on 9th October 2023 in Bern, Switzerland.

The meeting will evolve around “How do we assess the impact of our projects?” As evaluators and performance auditors we are experts in measuring outcomes and impacts.

The meeting will be interactive, meaning any contribution from members of the group – presentation of methods of assessment, challenges, etc. – is more than welcome! To submit your input proposition please get in touch with the Swiss Federal Audit Office, Chair of the group, at wgeppp-intosai@efk.admin.ch

We are already looking forward to welcoming you in Bern and will keep you up to date with a detailed program soon.

WGEPPP Flash Sessions

In 2023 the Working group will be hosting several informal online sessions to discuss your ongoing evaluations and audits, successes and challenges faced by SAIs. Members are invited to present a topic of their choice during 10-20 minutes, followed by questions and discussion points.

Our first session will take place on 15th March 2023 at 12:00 GMT through MSTeams (invitation will be sent per e-mail). Save the date!

Would you like to present a topic? Your input is more than welcome in this or one of our future sessions. Please get in touch with a short description of your idea at wgeppp-intosai@efk.admin.ch

WGEPPP Forum 2022

After overcoming the COVID-19 crisis, it was time to meet again – face to face – to exchange good practices and learn new techniques! The WGEPPP Forum took place in Bern, Switzerland, from 26 to 28 September 2022.

For more information about the Forum, please see the 2022 Meeting page: 2022 WGEPPP Meeting

Change of Chairmanship

The French SAI has chaired the WGEPPP for many years. The achievements are numerous and the evaluation of public policies and programmes is more than ever a topical issue and an area of expertise within our SAIs.          Since March 2022, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) leads the WGEPPP. This handover was formalised in Paris at the international conference on the future of Europe in the presence of Mrs Margit Kraker, President of the SAI of Austria and Secretary General of INTOSAI.
