PITI-VITI Returns to On-Site Training in the Pacific

In the first live, on-site auditing course offered by GSUSA's Pacific and Virgin Islands Training Initiatives in the Pacific Islands since the pandemic began, fifteen public accountability professionals from three island audit offices met in Guam on December 2-3 for in-person audit training on "Conducting Performance Audits".  Participants represented the Guam Office of Public Accountability, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Office of the Public Auditor, and the Republic of Palau Office of the Public Auditor.  Guam OPA hosted the training event.

The course included topics ranging from audit evidence and performance audit findings to descriptions, exercises, and examples of the phases of the performance audit process. "This was an excellent group, completing this training at the right time," said Graduate School USA instructor Drummond Kahn, "and participants really seemed to appreciate this opportunity for in-person audit instruction.  Having representation from three different audit offices and the chance to exchange ideas and examples in person made this class very effective."

The training offered two days of instruction, providing each attendee with 16 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits.  The event followed all host office and local health and safety protocols, and Graduate School USA required proof of vaccination by all participants.  GSUSA and its PITI-VITI program plans to offer in-person training where appropriate and in accordance with local regulations, as well as continuing to offer virtual training.
