The 2013 IFAC Annual Report explains our approach to the strategic and operational rejuvenation of IFAC—with the aim of delivering on our global advantage in a targeted way, and to leverage our substantial staff talent and experience to the greatest extent possible. Our equation for IFAC’s success is laid out in a revised business model, which consists of four operating lines: supporting standards development; quality and capacity; supporting the global accountancy profession; and global representation and advocacy.
Reporting within this new framework, this 2013 Annual Review discusses our operating environment, explains our strategic response and future direction, and demonstrates our performance through highlighted initiatives from 2013.
