ISSAI Implementation Initiative (3i Program) for OLACEFS, 2014-16

Beneficiary level: Regional
Project status: Ongoing
Duration from: 2014-03-01
Duration to: 2016-09-30
Total budget (US Dollar): $595000

This project aims at implementation of the ISSAI standards by the SAIs in the OLACEFS region through participation in IDI’s 3i Program – the ISSAI Implementation Initiative. Implementation of the ISSAIs will increase and standardize the quality of audit, and enhance SAI’s credibility and professionalism.
The main outputs that would be achieved at the SAI level are: • ISSAI implementation needs for each SAI assessed • ISSAI compliance assessment for each SAI carried out • ISSAI implementation strategy for each beneficiary SAI developed and implemented • Evaluation of ISSAI implementation in each SAI The beneficiaries of this proposal will be member SAIs of OLACEFS, 21 in total.
Seven of these are labelled as lower middle income countries on the ODA DAC list, the remaining 14 are upper middle-income countries. IDI has used some of its core funds to start the project, but further contributions are required to ensure it can be completed.

As part of its candidacy for the Olacefs’ 2013-2015 Presidency, the TCU has committed itself to raise awareness and encourage the implementation of the ISSAIs in the region. One of the planned actions on that regards, was to work in favour of the Olacefs SAIs participation in the 3i programme. The TCU, as Olacefs President, along with the Working Group for the ISSAIs implementation in the Olacefs SAIs (Gtania) and the Olacefs Regional Capacity Building Committee (CCR), will work with IDI to support SAIs during this process.
