International Governance, Accountability and Performance Program

Beneficiary level: Regional
Project status: Ongoing
Duration from: 2018-03-29
Duration to: 2024-12-31
Total budget (US Dollar): $11250000

The project aims to build the capacity of supreme audit institutions (SAIs) to further effective, accountable and inclusive public spending and delivery of services by the public service in Senegal, Guyana, Rwanda and Vietnam. The project works at supporting the efforts and the capacity of these countries’ governments to ensure their public services achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and respond to the needs and potential of women and girls. The project also seeks to build links with oversight bodies and strengthen their capacity to ensure that audit report findings are more effectively actioned, thus contributing to a more responsive public service.
Leveraging the internationally recognized expertise of Canada’s audit community, project activities include: (1) fellowships, in which  partner country auditors are placed with Canadian audit offices to build skills and capacity in performance auditing and leadership; (2) in-country and virtual training for staff of SAIs and oversight bodies to strengthen their audit skills and ability to follow-up on audit findings; and (3) providing management training to leaders in SAIs, with a particular focus on women’s empowerment. Each activity prioritises women auditors and managers to ensure improved representation and advancement of women in positions of leadership within audit offices and SAIs. It also includes training and mentoring on auditing gender equality and on gender mainstreaming for SAIs.
The project is implemented by the Canadian Audit and Accountability Foundation (CAAF) with support from the Office of the Auditor General of Canada, as well as Canadian provincial and municipal audit offices.
