CAROSAI -Strengthening the Capacity of SAIs in CAROSAI to Promote and Enhance Public Sector Accountability in the Region 2012-2015

Beneficiary level: Regional
Project status: Partly supported
Duration from: 2012-04-01
Duration to: 2015-12-31
Total budget (US Dollar): $9577000

Proposal is to Strengthen the capacity of SAIs in the CAROSAI region to promote and enhance public sector accountability, through an adequately resourced CAROSAI Secretariat and implementation of a new CAROSAI strategic plan. The 2010 SAI Stocktaking demonstrated the need for support to SAIs in the region and the need for a stronger regional body. A strengthened regional approach may be particularly valuable given the small size of most SAIs, common challenges in terms of SAI independence, and similar cultural heritages. The proposal has a phased approach, where phase 1 involves developing a new CAROSAI strategic plan for 2012-2015 and a Development Action Plan. The IADB has already committed funding towards this work. Phase 2 will focus on implementing the new strategic and development action plans.  The activities and budget for this phase is indicative and dependent on the content of the plans under development. In parallel to these phases, CAROSAI is seeking to strengthen the capacity of the CAROSAI Secretariat through hiring several staff members including a programme and institutional strengthening manager.
