Mauritanian SAI Capacity Development (2014-16)

Beneficiary level: Country
Project status: Planned
Duration from: 2014-08-01
Duration to: 2016-08-01
Total budget (US Dollar): $150000
DAC Income classification: Least Developed Countries

The proposed project seeks to enhance the performance of SAI Mauritania through strengthening professional and organisational capacity of the SAI. It is ambitious in scope, covering development of audit guidelines, training and implementation of international standards covering financial, compliance, and performance audit, including environment audit and the audit of extractive industries, and development of a Quality Assurance system. Given the limited financial and human resources of the SAI at present, its low audit coverage and delays in issuance of reports, further consideration may need to be given to prioritising its capacity development initiatives, and setting realistic milestones to guide the SAI’s future capacity development. The roles of the SAI and service provider, and the processes used to ensure sustainable change in performance, may need to be further clarified.
Providers of support:
The African Development Bank expressed their interest in supporting this initiative fully and a grant of 15000usd was approved. They are under dialogue.
