On 9th October 2023, it was that time again: our annual meeting with numerous WGEPPP members. The meeting took place in Bern, Switzerland.

In 2023 the Working group has been 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.

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 26th to 28th September 2022.

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.
