If you have been reading my blogs and articles, you know I am an advocate of continuous monitoring (CM) and auditing (CA) – in particular when it is designed to provide assurance that business risks are managed and the related controls are operating effectively. While there is value in the detective, after-the-fact identification of defects in transactions, that is looking at the past. Providing assurance on the management of risks through effective controls has a forward-looking perspective. Controls provide comfort that today’s and tomorrow’s risks are managed and activities are and will be performed as intended.

Reflections on the monitoring and evaluation of development aid projects, programmes and policies, and development of organisation's capacity to do the same. This blog also functions as the Editorial section of the MandE NEWS website
