The year of transformation for SOAB

Philipsburg — Recently SOAB, represented by the director Sint Maarten Ms. Candia Joseph, presented their 2022 annual report to the Minister of Finance Ardwell Irion. With the presentation of the annual report titled “Transformation,” the foundation fulfills its obligation in the context of good governance.

As the government accountant, SOAB understands the importance of being accountable to the government and appointed officials. The 2022 annual report contains not only financial data but also an overview of significant assignments completed in Sint Maarten during the past year and developments regarding personnel and quality assurance efforts within the organization. The annual report lays out how SOAB lives up to values of transparency and sound governance, and upholds the highest standard of quality in its services delivered to the governments of Curaçao and Sint Maarten, as well as all other clients.

The theme of the 2022 annual report, “Transformation,” underscores the profound and sustainable change journey upon which the organization has embarked. The most visible aspect was the rebranding of SOAB which was launched in the presence of local stakeholders in February 2023. With new leadership at the helm and a new strategic direction, the new identity reflects the organization’s commitment to catalyzing innovation in the public sector as well as the continuous growth and development of every professional at SOAB.

In 2023, SOAB will continue to strive towards a resilient and future-proof organization that is continuously improving to meet the quality standards, norms, and values it holds in high regard. The organization looks forward to expanding and strengthening its relationship with trusted clients and delivering value so as to optimize the trust of citizens in regards to the responsible management of public resources.
