IDI Work stream Bilateral Support 2024-2029
Many SAIs work in challenging environments where there is an acute need of developing core state functions and addressing deep-rooted practices undermining transparency and accountability. The SAIs in these contexts cannot fully benefit from IDI’s global and regional initiatives and require more long-term and dedicated support that considers the SAI’s unique needs, opportunities and context. Together with peer SAIs, INTOSAI regions and other key SAI partners, we will continue to provide customized support for selected SAIs. The overall objective is to ensure that the most challenged SAIs are supported and are improving their performance.
Our bilateral work is guided by the IDI Bilateral Policy. This requires our support to be designed based on the SAI’s strategic plans and gives flexibility for delivery methods and areas of support. All areas of SAI development, including jurisdictional control functions, can be supported as long as these are prioritized areas for the SAI and essential for enabling the SAI to have an impact.
IDI will seek to play a supporting role for providers in challenging countries, with the aim of enabling peer SAIs to get funding, accelerate support, manage risks and succeed as providers. Collaboration with the INTOSAI CBC working groups on peer-to-peer support and auditing in complex and challenging contexts is essential. To strengthen the effect of support to SAIs in challenging contexts, IDI will continue to develop partnerships with and learn from other organisations engaged in enhancing Public Financial Management in challenging contexts.
