GSAI Dominica – Phase 1 peer-support project 2023-2025
The Office of the Director of Audit of the Commonwealth of Dominica, the State Audit Office of Latvia, the Caribbean Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (CAROSAI) and the IDI have formed a peer collaboration funded through the Global SAI Accountability Initiative (GSAI). This involves peer-based support to financial, compliance and performance audit manuals and reports, quality management, digitalisation, stakeholder engagement, strategic management and coordination of partners.
The Audit Department of Dominica is undergoing several organisational improvements based on the strategic plan for 2022-2027. It has a crucial role in promoting and ensuring good governance in Dominica. Its mandate is stated in the legal framework – Constitution of Dominica and Audit Act (1994).
The project activities are aligned with SAI Dominica’s strategic plan for 2022-2027 and will contribute to improve the SAI PMF score in audit strategy, human resource management, SAI independence, professional development and communication/stakeholder engagement areas. All training activities will be tailored to meet the specific needs of SAI Dominica and staff capacity. During the project, international best practices and support resources shared by CAROSAI and IDI will be used where appropriate to facilitate optimal results and increase efficiency within the Audit Department of Dominica.
The overall objective of project is to Enable SAI Dominica to conduct more impactful audits and have a stronger institutional standing through peer collaboration.
The project has four components:
- Project management and coordination
- Audit competencies, quality, processes, and results
- Independence and stakeholder engagement
