“We believe this project will advance our employee’s professional skills, which will in turn take to a new level our audit & control practices,” said Natalya Godunova, Chair of the Accounts Committee.
The overall objective is to contribute to a stronger public administration system, with comprehensive accountability framework in place. Stronger financial discipline and higher efficiency in utilization of the public funds and assets is a critical part of this work.
The project is part of UNDP support to the Government of Kazakhstan in its effort to build a professional state apparatus, responding to citizens’ needs and providing quality service to them.

UNDP will continue supporting this bold vision by bringing in best practices and innovative solutions,” noted Yakup Beris, UNDP Resident Representative in Kazakhstan.
