Conclusions of the 1 st Survey The results of the Survey showed that the former Committee’s work was valuable; nevertheless we had to be more aggressive in order to disseminate our products among INTOSAI. The PDC products were regarded as important inputs and references for sound audit practices; therefore we had to maintain the quality of our documents. Even though the PDC Website had been used as the main access to our work, it was clear that its complete overhaul was needed. ASF | 19
