Enhancing Roles of Supreme Audit Institutions in Selected ASEAN Countries -Phase 1
For Lao PDR, Philippines, Myanmar ASEANSAI
Based on the request of the ASEANSAI to support its members The proposed project will focus on empowering roles of SAIs as the countries’ lead public sector audit institutions to be more accountable in compliance with ISSAI, It will provide opportunities for SAIs to share their skills to improve their capacity and effectiveness, especially on financial audit.
Following the findings of a research sponsored by GIZ on assessing the compliance of ASEANSAI members on ISSAI, the Project will support COA, SAO and OAG to prepare and implement action plans to deal with DP funded projects, and will be expanded to other public assets. The three selected SAIs will be assigned as the IAs. The three SAIs will be supported by consultants to prepare country-based guidelines to implement ISSAI; and guide them to test specific guidelines to properly audit DP funded projects. Lessons learned from the research and field test will be disseminated to other ASEANSAI members through workshops, symposium, websites and/or other media. Through various means, the less developed SAIs will also gather inputs from more developed SAIs. Follow-up actions will be explored to potentially replicate similar services to other DMCs’ SAIs.
