Internal Audit and Oversight Division

The Internal Audit and Oversight Division (IAOD) is an independent internal oversight body. It supports the Director General in his management responsibilities and assists program managers in attaining WIPO’s objectives.

The IAOD carries out objective, systematic and independent reviews of program implementation and operations including:

  • Audits - assessing the adequacy of management controls to ensure cost-efficient and accountable operations.
  • Evaluations - analyzing and assessing program results to improve current implementation and performance as well as future planning.
  • Investigations - examining possible wrongdoing and identifying vulnerable areas where fraudulent activity might occur.

The work of the IAOD is governed by the Internal Oversight Charter PDF, Internal Oversight Charter approved by the WIPO General Assembly.
