On the occasion of the retirement of Saskia J. Stuiveling as the president of the Netherlands Court of Audit, eight former heads of audit institutions took to the stage to talk candidly about their work. Topics covered included innovations in the field, the effects of the financial crisis on their profession, changes resulting from the open data movement, and the need for new skills to audit the oil industry. This book presents their discussion, offering a snapshot of the current state of the profession at its highest levels.
Review Quotes
Economist
"In The Art of Audit, Roel Janssen, a veteran Dutch journalist, tells the story [of Supreme Audit Institutions] through conversations with former top auditors from eight countries. . . . The book shows that, at their best, the watchdogs play a vital role in bolstering public trust in government, particularly in countries that are in political chaos, emerging from dictatorship."
