"the institute was opened under Law No. 10 of 2021, and is the first of its kind in Iraq." He added,
"In light of the circumstances in which voices are louder in the presence of corruption and waste of public money, there must be oversight and internal auditing to combat this scourge." He pointed out that
"the institute was built correctly through the legislation of a special law, and
it came with the establishment of an institute to be a professional certificate with international cooperation and by training professional personalities", pointing out that
this is the only institute that was established in the history of the Iraqi state. He stressed that
"the institute has accomplished what it was supposed to do and the outputs of the institute must be adhered to to fill the gap left by the abolition of the offices of general inspectors and to go towards scrutiny of public money and oversight at a high level and in a manner approaching international institutions."
