Mauritanian SAI Capacity Development (2014-16)
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.
