IBRACON regional president and Baker Tilly Brazil partner participates in the launch of Rio de Janeiro’s social observatory

The Brazilian institute of auditor (IBRACON) regional president for Rio de Janeiro and Baker Tilly Brazil partner Paulo Buzzi Filho attended the launch ceremony of Rio de Janeiro’s social observatory.

The social observatory is part of a national network of observatories which brings together citizens from all different walks of life to scrutinise their municipality’s spending and look for irregularities.

In march of this year, the social observatories of Brazil signed a cooperation agreement with IBRACON under which the institute developed a standardised methodology to train and help the individuals involved in the observatories to identify proof of irregularities based on auditing skills.
