Global SAI Accountability Initiative (GSAI) programme

Beneficiary level: Global
Project status: Ongoing
Duration from: 2022-08-01
Duration to: 2026-12-31
Total budget (US Dollar): $2500000

The Global SAI Accountability Initiative (GSAI) aims to mobilize effective and well-coordinated support to SAIs in challenging contexts. The initiative is expected to empower the SAIs to take forward their own capacity development and reach a new level of sustained capacities and performance. The initiative was launched in 2022 by the INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation as part of its broad work to promote support, independence, performance and benefits of SAIs in developing countries.

The SAIs of Belize, Benin, Dominica, Haiti, Honduras, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon and Tajikistan have joined the initiative. These SAIs have unique opportunities for development and needs of support. Tailored country projects are to be developed for each of them in partnership with peer SAIs, donors and implementation partners.

In each case, there are peer SAIs, regional organizations and experienced implementation partners interested to provide technical support, and various donors are expected to fund country projects.

The INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation requested the IDI to assist the partners to develop projects, coordinate efforts and enable synergies between countries. With funding from the European Union in particular, the IDI has established “the GSAI programme” for this purpose.
