Good Financial Governance in Africa – AFROSAI

Beneficiary level: Regional
Project status: Ongoing
INTOSAI region(s): AFROSAI
Duration from: 2018-12-03
Duration to: 2022-01-31
Total budget (US Dollar): $23793000

The GIZ programme supports AFROSAI and its language subgroups, technical committees and working groups in the fields of public financial control and the auditing of public institutions. The General Secretariat in Yaoundé is supported in its organisational development and the preparation of environmental audits. Furthermore, AFROSAI is supported in developing a regional methodology of SDG auditing. In order to tackle the underrepresentation of women in SAIs GIZ and AFROSAI developed the Women Leadership Academy.
In Africa, technical cooperation with the African Organization of English-speaking Supreme Audit Institutions (AFROSAI-E) led to a SAI PFM reporting framework—a tool allowing public auditors to assess PFM process performance along the entire budget cycle. The tool assesses core PFM functions and addresses essential institutions, such as the Ministry of Finance, Parliament, and Revenue Authority, in addition to selected spending ministries and departments. Sector ministry selection, which often includes the Ministries of Education and Health, is based on potential impact in achieving the SDGs.
