Members of the IIA Bulgaria Governing Board

Ognyan Todorov, Certified Internal Auditor in Public Sector

I have been working in the Control sector for more than 21 years. In 1994 I became a member of the Financial Auditors Family at State Financial Control, later in 2001 I stared a career in Internal audit – the young Control offspring (The Public Financial Inspection Agency). Going through the Internal audit Directorate at Ministry of Finance (2005-2006) and gaining theoretical experience incl. trough international experts, since November 2006 I have had the honor and pleasure to build and manage together with my colleagues the Internal Audit Unit at the National Revenue Agency.

Fascinated by the idea of publicity (expressed by many of my fellow auditors) and the motto of The IIA Bulgaria (progress by sharing knowledge and experience) through my work as a member of the Governing Board of The IIA Bulgaria) I would like to contribute to the development of "best practices" in this area. I wish that our forums shared more information about our way of making things happen, and from presenting in hall type "classroom" to move on to round tables. They say that everything is already on the Internet, that the "era of Internet of Things" has come! I wonder if this is valid for internal auditors’ work???


Stefan Belchev,PhD, Certified Internal Auditor in Public Sector

I have been Director, Internal audit Directorate at Ministry of Finance, Bulgaria from 2006. I also combine the Control Methodology function in the public sector from 2017 in formed Control Methodology and Internal Audit Directorate at Ministry of Finance, Bulgaria. It may sound like old fashioned altruism, but I consider myself a person who is fully committed to the profession of “Internal auditor”. I believe that we – the internal auditors can contribute to making our country a better place to live and develop. We can make it possible only by working hard and cooperating with the people on whom it depends the most/ those in power– the Legislative and the Executive Authorities. This will give us invaluable credit to establish Тhe IIA Bulgaria as a professional organization with proven Management and Control values, as well as a reliable guarantor of all Internal Audit Practitioners in Bulgaria.
