Co-ordinating committee

The Co-ordinating Committee was established in terms of Article 23 of the Internal Audit and Financial Investigations Act in order to ‘co-ordinate the activities of, and to facilitate the exchange of information between, different entities charged with the protection and safeguarding of public funds’. The latter also include funds that Malta is required to manage under its international obligations.

The Co-ordinating Committee meets multilaterally on a regular basis, with the aim to increase the local co-operation between the agencies involved in the area of anti-fraud and anti-corruption.
