Taking the theme of “Internal Audit: Adding Value in Public Sector Transformation”, the 2018 Public Sector Internal Audit Conference focuses on the opportunities that are presented to internal auditors and the roles that they can play in contributing to the Singapore Public Sector transformation to achieve greater efficiencies and performance in service delivery. Innovation and disruptive changes are becoming the new normal in the public sector. While internal audit functions are uniquely positioned to play the role, they need to adapt, transform and proactively seek opportunities to support the transformation to Digital Government and the drive towards a Smart Nation. The delegates will gain insights to position their internal audit functions to be an integral part of the transformation process across the public sector.
