GSAI Kyrgyzstan – Phase 1 peer support project 2023-2025
The Accounts Chamber of the Kyrgyz Republic (CAKR) and the Supreme Audit Office of Poland have formed a peer collaboration funded through the Global SAI Accountability Initiative (GSAI) managed by IDI. This involves peer-based support to financial, compliance and performance audit manuals and reports, quality management system, digitalisation, stakeholder engagement, strategic management and coordination of partners.
The Accounts Chamber of the Kyrgyz Republic (CAKR) has a wide mandate including audit of all national and local budgets, extra-budgetary funds, and the use of state and municipal property. In its activities, the CAKR is accountable to the President and the Jogorku Kenesh (Parliament).
The CAKR is undergoing several organizational improvements based on the strategic plan for 2022-2026 as well as new constitutional law enacted on May 31, 2023. To effectively achieve the goals of the strategic plan and implement the new audit act, CAKR is partnering with the Supreme Audit Office of Poland (SAOP) for technical support.
The overall objective of project is to strengthen the capacity of the Chamber of Accounts of the Kyrgyz Republic, thereby improving accountability and transparency in the management of public resources in the Kyrgyz Republic, through improved audit methodologies that comply with recognized INTOSAI auditing standards and strengthening stakeholder engagements.
The project has five components:
- Audit methodologies, quality and reports
- Digitalization of audit processes
- Communication and stakeholder awareness raising
- Strategic management of the Accounts Chamber
- Project management, coordination and mobilization of long-term support for the Accounts Chamber
The cooperation agreement lays out expected results, resources, responsibilities and governance of the project. The intention of Supreme Audit Office of Poland is to use its own experience of modernisation over the last decades to guide colleagues of Kyrgyzstan to find the ways that suit them the best. As a project partner, IDI’s role is mainly to make available global resources useful for the partners and provide financial support through the GSAI programme.
