European Union (EU) representative Ms. Marga Peeters had a meeting with the management of Pohnpei Office of the Public Auditor (POPA) on February 4, 2020. The meeting is about the possible technical assistance of EU to the FSM government, specifically to the FSM Finance Department and Public Auditors’ Offices in Pohnpei, FSM. The technical assistance is part of the EUR 14.2 million grant under the European Development Fund (EDF 11) that FSM congress recently approved. In the meeting, Ms. Peeters discussed the possible assistance that EU can provide to Public Auditors’ offices in the FSM. POPA is exploring the possibility of a consultant who will train and/or work with POPA’s staff for not more than one (1) year. POPA is currently working in collaboration with the Office of the National Public Auditor (ONPA) on the proposal for possible Technical Assistance grant under this program.
