Kazakhstan, Astana, Dec. 11 / Trend D. Mukhtarov /
To improve its status, it would be good for the Kazakh Accounts Committee's activity to be regulated by a special law like in Russia, rather than through a provision, head of the Russian Accounts Chamber Sergey Stepashin said at a joint meeting in Astana. He based his report on the results of friendly audits of the Kazakh Accounts Committee, carried out by experts from the Russian Accounts Chamber.
"It would be good for the Kazakh Accounts Committee's activity to be regulated by a special law as in Russia, rather than a provision to improve its status," Stepashin said.
He stressed that the Kazakh Audit Committee has become the authoritative financial control body for 15 years of activity.
"As recommendations, we suggest that the Kazakh Accounts Committee to actively cooperate with the Parliament and the government of the country," Stepashin said.
He said that many bills, affecting the functions of financial control, do not conform to the Accounts Chamber, following the results of the friendly check in Kazakhstan.
"It is important for the Chamber to be involved in the financial examination of bills," he stressed.
He added that according to the Russian government's initiative, the auditors of the Russian Accounts Chamber will be invited to government meetings where ministers make reports.
"This is a very good initiative, which will allow having an impartial view in all areas of the economy," he said.
