Djibouti Court of Audit Capacity Development (2015-17)
The purpose of the project is to develop the capacity of the Djibouti Court of Audit with a view to improving the level, quality and impact of its findings. It aims to achieve the following results: • Reduction in the backlog of judicial reviews of compliance • Execution of performance audits • Implementation of reliable quality control and assurance systems • Enhancement of the status of the Court of Audit’s work and its image. SAI Djibouti is in the process of rebuilding its capacity following a temporary interruption caused by a fire that destroyed the Court’s headquarters in 2010. In addition, the SAI is undergoing a transition from the former Chamber of Accounts and Budgetary Discipline to a Court of Audit, which has further affected the level of judicial reviews and timely issuance of judgments. Work is required to develop the necessary audit manuals and guidance, train auditors and judges, conduct pilot performance audits, establish and train a quality assurance division, and hold focus group conferences on the work and value of the Court of Audit.
