Implementation of the ADB/IDI project ‘Sustainable Performance Audit Practices in Asia and the Pacific’
This initiative is expected to facilitate sustainable performance audit practices in SAIs. This involves helping SAIs in enhancing organisational systems as well as professional staff capacities required to deliver high quality performance audits which have an impact. The quality of audits depends on quality of strategic and annual planning, audit methodology, audit follow-up, quality management and professional competence of SAI auditors.
As such, sustainable performance audit practice will require intervention both support for organisational systems development as well as developing the professional competencies of SAIs performance audit team. This also means that the knowledge and skills acquired during the project will not lie with the individual staff members having directly been involved in project activities including pilot audits. Instead, the knowledge will be rolled-out to all staff members and embedded in SAI’s environment and processes thus ensuring common approach to auditing and medium, and long-term impact. It will also involve supporting the SAI to put in place regular systems for professional development of its performance auditors.
