On May 25, the Brazilian Federal Court of Accounts (TCU) unveiled its candidacy to the United Nations (UN) Board of Auditors to the international community. The ceremony, held at the UN headquarters in New York, gathered Brazilian authorities and diplomats from more than 130 permanent missions of the organization. 

At the opening ceremony, Ambassador Ronaldo Costa Filho, Brazil's representative at the United Nations, emphasized that the organization requires highly qualified auditors. "They need to master modern accountability methodologies and techniques and be aware that transparency is a fundamental pillar for the integrity of the entire United Nations System", he said. 

For the ambassador, "Brazil, through the Brazilian Federal Court of Accounts, has full capacity to provide independent, efficient and quality auditing to contribute to the transparency, legitimacy, integrity and proper functioning of the UN". 

The president of the TCU, Minister Bruno Dantas, noted that the Brazilian Court of Accounts has been one of the most important democratic institutions in the country, with a mandate and competencies established in all Federal Constitutions since 1891. "Throughout history, the Court of Accounts has played a fundamental role in ensuring transparency, accountability, and efficiency in public administration, generating significant impacts on the quality of public services and the lives of our citizens," he said. 

Dantas highlighted the TCU's performance in Brazil and in the world. "Our institution is responsible for accounting, financial, budgetary, performance, and asset control of public institutions in Brazil, as well as for legality, legitimacy, and economy," he explained. The minister recalled that the Court is at the head of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI), which brings together 195 countries. "We are proud to be an audit institution internationally recognized for the quality of our work, both by the audit community and by other international organizations," he pointed out.
