Today, the Financial Audit Board came to the end of its interim visit having looked at a number of activities and transactions at the ITER Organization during the first half of 2009. The Board also discussed the planning of an audit of ITER's information system, and in particular the system's security.
This audit which is scheduled early in 2010 will come in addition to the Board's regular audits of the Organization's annual financial statements. "During this interim visit we discussed how to proceed," Hiroshi Nagano, the Board's chairman, said. "In our next on-site meeting in April we will come up with first conclusions."
The Financial Audit Board is constituted by representatives from the seven ITER Members. As of 1 January 2010, Alice C. Peterson from the US will take over the Chair in accordance to the Board's rotation principle. return to Newsline #98
