About FIPP

The creation of the Forum for INTOSAI Professional Pronouncements (FIPP) is intended to ensure a more uniform approval process for the ISSAIs and any other pronouncements included in the INTOSAI Framework of Professional Pronouncements (IFPP). FIPP have general responsibilities for the content and quality of the full set of professional standards defined by INTOSAI.

It is the intention that FIPP should strengthen INTOSAI as an international standard setter and drive the continued development of appropriate standards for public-sector auditing. Members of FIPP will be expected to engage actively in the standards-developing process and define the appropriate level of requirements for public-sector auditing. FIPP will draw on project groups and the subcommittees of the Capacity Building Committee (CBC), Knowledge Sharing Committee (KSC) and Professional Standards Committee (PSC) to draft proposals for the pronouncements within the IFPP.

FIPPs members are selected through a joint decision by the chairs of the Capacity Building Committee (CBC), Knowledge Sharing Committee (KSC) and Professional Standards Committee (PSC) in consultation with FIPP chair, following an open call for nominations. The appointment of new members for FIPP shall be presented to the INTOSAI Governing Board for final endorsement. Collectively, the membership should reflect the necessary skills, the different types of public-sector auditing and the diversity of the INTOSAI membership.

New pronouncements are developed by the INTOSAI community according to the due process for the INTOSAI Framework of Professional Pronouncementsand are included in the Strategic Development Plans for the IFPP, se below for the two SDP-plans.
