CAAF-FCAR – International Legislative Oversight Program

Beneficiary level: Global
Project status: Completed
Duration from: 2012-08-29
Duration to: 2017-12-31
Total budget (US Dollar): $6608145

The ILOP aims to improve transparency, effectiveness and accountability in public resource management in Cameroon, Ghana, Tanzania and Vietnam by building sustainable performance audit and legislative oversight capacity within the supreme audit institutions (SAIs) and parliamentary oversight committees of these countries. The program’s principal activities are nine-month Fellowships (for senior auditors) and six-week internships (for SAI managers) in Canada, in-country and regional workshops, distance education courses, and ongoing mentoring. Projects, including performance audits, ensure a practical focus and additional training on “soft skills” such as leadership and communication help participants implement what they have learned and effect change in their offices. Throughout the program, CCAF emphasizes the Government of Canada’s priority and crosscutting themes for international development and encourages SAIs to consider these themes in their performance audits. ILOP activities are delivered in partnership with Canadian experts, including the Offices of the Auditors General of Canada, of Quebec, of Alberta and of British Columbia, and in coordination with the regional associations of SAIs, the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions, and other development partners working in ILOP countries. Our many Canadian partners participate as Fellowship hosts, mentors, and training co-facilitators, volunteering to share their experience and expertise with the international participants. The ILOP builds upon the success of CCAF’s previous five-year program (the International Legislative Audit Assistance Program, 2007-2012) and CCAF’s long history of international engagement, dating to 1980.
