CREFIAF -Build in-house capacity in performance auditing in the 23 SAIs from CREFIAF, 2012-16
The 2010 SAI stocktaking recognized a particular need to enhance the capacity of SAIs in francophone Africa. This proposal seeks to strengthen the capacity of the 23 members of CREFIAF to undertake performance auditing as a complement to the financial and compliance audits currently undertaken. It builds on a current CIDA financed performance audit programme, and seeks to ensure sustainable and long term development of the in-house performance audit capacities in the CREFIAF SAIs, through training workshops and on the job implementation of skills through the planning, execution and reporting on pilot audits. The proposal targets all 23 member SAIs, and is anchored in the CREFIAF strategic plan.
