The task of Goal Committees is to lead the INTOSAI’s efforts under their respective goals and thereby assist the Governing Board in implementing INTOSAI’s goals and objectives. The Goal Committees’ work priorities are defined in detail by the INTOSAI Strategic Plan.
The following four main Goal Committees are set up:
The INTOSAI Strategic Plan as approved by INCOSAI XVIII includes the creation of a Professional Standards Committee (PSC). The purpose of the PSC is to promote strong, independent and multidisciplinary SAIs by encouraging SAIs to lead by example and contributing to the development and adoption of appropriate and effective professional standards.
At present time the PSC consists of the Steering Committee and Subcommittees.
The Subcommittees work independently over an extended period of time, in accordance with the approved work plan.
The PSC is based on an open and voluntary membership that constitutes a pool of resources to carry out existing and future tasks.

Brazil — Chair of the INTOSAI Governing Board
The 68th meeting of INTOSAI's Governing Board, held in Abu Dhabi, in December 2016, decided to establish the forum as an INTOSAI permanent body, called the Forum for INTOSAI Professional Pronouncements (FIPP).
The initial task of FIPP is to consider and propose how to develop the ISSAI framework further by
- providing clearer distinction between auditing standards, other standards (requirements), guidelines, best practice documents, etc. covering both auditing, ethics, independence and capacity development, and
- providing clearer directions on the format and quality requirements for each of these different categories of documents as established by the common forum.
The Governing Board and Congress approved the proposal for a revision of the ISSAI Framework.
The composition of the forum intends to mirror, as much as possible, the membership of INTOSAI in respect to regional representation, SAI models, audit types and audit/capacity developing expertise.
