Providers of Support:
The European Commission (EC) conducted a prefeasibility study which showed favourable results for support to AFROSAI-e in a regional PFM context.  However, commitment credits for the remaining period has been used and future financial support to South Africa is currently being negotiated.  No immediate financial support through the country programme will be possible at the moment.
The activities covered in the application has been partly covered by the support provided by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) to AFROSAI-E. 31tst July the two parties entered into an agreement which commits MFA to support AFROSAI-E with 2 million USD until 2016. The support is planned to be extended with 1,5 million USD for 2017-2019
