Welcome to Disaster Audit

The project is an attempt to improve accountability over disaster funds. With the massive scale and urgency of the rescue, recovery, relief and rehabilitation efforts, huge amount involved in the midst of relaxed controls, there is a need to assess accountability gaps and introduce improvements that will ensure the availability, reliability and quality of financial information. Under this project the Commission will set up a system of accounting and audit of DRM funds receipt and utilization that will provide clear guidelines on how to account for and how to audit all disaster related funds regardless of source. This project will fill in the dearth of knowledge and experience on disaster aid audit which thus far has not been accorded equal attention.. No other similar initiative has been undertaken to date.
