The European Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (EUROSAI) congress will be hosted in Israel in May-June 2024, with Israeli State Comptroller Matanyahu Englman set to take over as president of the organization.
The regional body of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) will meet for the first congress in person since the coronavirus pandemic, under the theme “Sharing minds = Greater SAIs.”
Englman is preparing to become the president of the organization, replacing the Czech Republic’s Miloslav Kala. The president is the head of the institution that hosts the congress, until the body’s next assembly.
OECD Secretary-General Mathias Cormann will visit Israel as Englman’s guest of honor at the congress, it was announced on Thursday.
“The OECD organization is creating standards considerably assisting the state audit,” said Englman. “Strengthening the relationship between the State Comptroller’s Office and the organization’s secretary-general will enable to better audit and to develop precise comparative abilities for the developed countries members of the organization.”

In the Thursday Zoom meeting, Englman and Cormann discussed coordinating the transfer of statistical data to improve audits as part of cooperation between Israel and the OECD.
In March, Englman hosted the 4th EUROSAI Governing Board Meeting at a technical level in Jerusalem. They discussed group projects and the next congress.
The EUROSAI congress is held every three years. The previous congress was initially set for 2020 in Prague, but was delayed because of the pandemic.
