Contraloría General de Medellín

The Comptroller General of Medellín is nominated for the United Nations Public Service Award of 2017 (UNPSA) under the category “Promoting transparency, accountability and integrity in the public service” thanks to the Scholar Comptrollership initiative, which encourages young people to participate and commit to their institutions, the environment and their city.

“This nomination fills me with pride because I feel like the Scholar Comptrollership Program is helping educate people with values, commitment and willingness so that our children and young people set an example in all the scenarios where they have an impact,” said Patricia Bonilla Sandoval, comptroller general of Medellín.

With the Scholar Comptrollership Program, the Comptroller General of Medellín contributes to raising awareness regarding the principles of responsibility, legality and transparency for the proper planning and use of public resources. Currently, there are more than 290 school comptrollers in the educational institutions of Medellín committed to the construction of a responsible educational community with the proper use of resources and the environment.

The awards ceremony will take place at the United Nations Day of Public Function on June 22 and 23, 2017 in The Hague, Netherlands. The nomination involves intervention in the United Nations Services Forum and the Innovation Fair to extend the experience of the Scholar Comptrollers to other participating countries. The event is jointly organized by the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA).
