OLACEFS – Implementation of the intoSAINT Integrity Model in SAIs in OLACEFS

Beneficiary level: Regional
Project status: Partly supported
Duration from: 2014-01-01
Duration to: 2017-12-31
Total budget (US Dollar): $12000

The purpose of this project is to enhance OLACEFS member SAIs’ contribution to the continuous improvement of the public sector, through implementation of the intoSAINT Integrity Model to strengthen their capacities to develop a sound Integrity Policy. In the 21 OLACEFS members, it will contribute to creating a work environment that promotes trust and facilitates a prevention-oriented institutional culture. The project involves holding regular Integrity Self Assessment Workshops to produce recommendations and risk analyses for SAI top management, in order to strengthen their Institutional Integrity Policy, and follow-up reports on implementation, using trained intoSAINT moderators from peer SAIs. SAIs within OLACEFS will provide venues, materials and their own staff resources as in-kind support. Peer SAIs will provide moderators as in-kind support. Funding is sought to cover only air transport, accommodation and meal expenses for moderators from peer SAIs, and will be prioritized towards OLACEFS member SAIs classified as lower middle income countries (Belize, Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay).
The applicant indicated that there was ongoing dialogue with Inter American Development Bank. On the other hand, OLACEFS through a collaboration agreement signed with GIZ, has made available 9,000 USD for the implementation of IntoSAINT workshops in the region in 2015. This budget is affordable to carry out three workshops.
