Guinea Bissau – Capacity Development Support to Guinea Bissau Court of Auditors, 2014-2016

Beneficiary level: Country
Project status: Proposed (Expression of interest)
Duration from: 2014-08-01
Duration to: 2016-08-01
Total budget (US Dollar): $2948130
DAC Income classification: Least Developed Countries

The proposed intervention is comprehensive and builds on the Court of Audit’s strategic plan for 2013-2017 which emphasizes four main weak areas that need focus. 1) Making the SAI independent in administrative and financial terms. 2) Strengthen the SAI with sufficient, motivated and skilled human resources. 3) Strengthen mechanisms for interaction with stakeholders. 4) Produce quality reports. The need for establishing a legal framework that gives the Court of Audit and the Head of the SAI sufficient independence and broad enough mandate is key in the proposal. Planned activities include: • review of the Organic Law and preparation of the special statute of the auditor • campaigns to raise awareness of the role of the SAI for the government officials and parliament members • develop audit manuals and procedures (not existing today), • run training courses in financial and compliance auditing, • create a quality control unit, • prepare and implement HR policies. The applicant proposes the Portuguese Court of Auditors to be the implementing partner on development of institutional and audit capacity. For the development of audit manuals, communication and stakeholder management and infrastructure, an implementing partner would be selected through a competitive process.
