African Regional SAI Building Program – Phase II

Beneficiary level: Regional
Project status: Completed
Duration from: 2007-06-29
Duration to: 2012-03-30
Total budget (US Dollar): $5347000

The project goal is to improve the status of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) in the region and to contribute to their development and strengthening, thus better enabling them to promote honesty, transparency, effectiveness, and accountability in the use and management of public funds.
The purpose is to improve and harmonize the audit methods, practices, and procedures of SAIs in the region, by such means as adopting modern standards, implementing integrated training, and exchanging information.
Phase II of the “Regional SAI Building Program in Sub-Saharan Francophone Africa” comprises two tiers:
1) Tier 1 seeks mainly to continue building the capacities of SAIs, especially in leadership and management, financial audit, information technology audit, and detection of fraud and irregularities; to build their performance and environmental audit capacity; and to build their capacity to design and implement ongoing training and development programs for their staff.
2) Tier 2 seeks mainly to support other aspects of SAI institution building: independence; financial, administrative, and management autonomy; organizational structure; information management systems; human resource management and development systems; quality control of work and reporting; and management of available material resources.
