Equal Futures Audit changemakers initiative (EFA)
The initiative was launched at INCOSAI in November 2022. EFA Changemakers (2023-24) is an initiative to transform a pool of SAI auditors into change agents who develop EFA strategies for their SAIs and lead an EFA audit in the SAI.
To begin with this initiative will be offered in English and Spanish for up to 25 SAIs (15 English speaking and 10 Spanish speaking). Each SAI is requested to nominate two persons from different leadership levels in the SAI. While one will act as EFA Changemaker Strategy, the other will act as EFA Changemaker Audit.
We have identified six key areas of marginalization – poverty, gender, ethnicity, migration, age and disability which the EFA pilot audit conducted by the changemaker could focus on.
Besides creating a pool of EFA Changemakers, this initiative is expected to result in EFA change strategies and EFA audits at the participating SAI level.
Those candidates who successfully complete their education, strategy and audit assignments will graduate as IDI’s EFA Changemaker and become a part of an alumni network.
