In fulfillment of its 2012 Action Plan, the then Regional Capacity Building Committee (CCR), now known as the Capacity Building Committee (CCC), held the 2nd and 3rd of August 2012, in Montevideo, Uruguay, at the International Seminar on Fiscal Control and Public Works in Latin America, as a starting point for international cooperation on this topic.
The seminar took place within the framework of Phase I of the OLACEFS-GIZ Regional Program, which contracted a Specialized Consultancy in Public Works Auditing, with the main objective of supporting the SAIs of the region in the process of identification and socialization of good practices in public works audits as a joint learning strategy and generation of institutional capacities.
