German System "Cooperative Examination"

BERLIN, GERMANY -- On September 18-29, the DGRV organized a training course for consultants from Vietnam and from Philippine project partner, NATCCO, in the practice of Auditing.
 
The training consisted of two parts, starting with the introduction into the German cooperative sector and the review of the cooperative Prufwesen DGRV in Bonn, and a one-week internship in the DGRV headquarters.  
 
The internship leader, associate veteran Winfried Hemken, introduced the organization and working methods of DGRV to the four interns, including a course on planning, execution and reporting, and insight into the audit software used.
In addition to theory, two financial cooperatives were visited and insight was given on their audit system, as well as their operations.
 
Matters on compliance to audits and audit IT software were discussed.
 
Raiffeisen-Volksbank Fresena eG in the north and Bettenhaus Heintzen in Oldenburg financed the visits. The internship was done in English. With the help of the internship, the four trainees will be able to conduct self-examination in their countries and thus contribute to the development of the cooperative sector in Vietnam and the Philippines.
 
Raiffeisen-Volksbank Fresena dG warmly welcomed the group. In photo are Matthias Smit (back row, from left), board member Bernd Eschen and internal auditor Jann Schatteburg, and Vietnamese representatives.  Standing in front are Sharon Marie Dy and Ruselle Ballaran of the NATCCO Consultancy.
