Currently available in English and Arabic, this compilation provides readers with easy access to internationally adopted guiding principles, standards and best practices of financial oversight of security sector institutions. It allows readers to: access key international standards on budgeting and auditing in the security sector; compare existing practices and regulations in their countries with universally accepted budgeting and auditing principles; use the international standards as a basis for proposals to political leaders and members of parliament for reforming the prevailing financial oversight system in the security sectors of their countries; and monitor and evaluate the performance of financial accountability institutions against international best practice.
