CAROSAI – Audit Management Software
In this proposed intervention CAROSAI seeks to establish a Comprehensive Audit Management Software (CAMS) program to assist their SAI members with the planning, scheduling, monitoring and management of audits. CAROSAI argues that developing a CAMS as a regional initiative would provide significant cost savings. In addition, the majority of the member SAIs do not have the resources to acquire such a system on their own. A need for the establishment of such a regional product has been affirmed by CAROSAI by a majority of their SAI members. The initiative intends to hire a software developer through an open competitive procurement process. The selected firm will start by conducting a needs assessment of the region, and based on the results of the needs assessment the SAIs will be grouped according to set criteria. The introduction of the CAMS is intended to be done on a phased basis based on ranking, giving the SAIs that are not deemed ready the chance to make the necessary organizational changes to ensure successful implementation of the software.
The IADB funded the visit of a delegation of Heads of SAIs of CAROSAI to the Office of the Comptroller General of Chile to learn about the features and use of the Integrated System for Audit Control (SICA), with a view to explore applicability among some CAROSAI members. The CAROSAI delegation included the Heads of SAIs Barbados, Guyana, Suriname and The Bahamas. After the visit there has been no further progress in the project.
