Support to the Court of Accounts of Algeria
Support to the Court of Auditors to develop a strategic approach for further strengthening its institutional and professional capacity for current and future tasks.
In 2013, SIGMA worked with Algeria’s Court of Accounts to conduct a peer review to support the Court’s strategic development towards an independent supreme audit institution operating in line with international standards.
The review addressed three key issues: (1) the Court’s strategic and methodological
approach and organisation of its planning and follow-up activities; (2) its processes
and procedures to perform its various audit and judicial review responsibilities at the
national and regional levels; and (3) its management of human resources, information
technology and communications. The peer review also presented recommendations to help the Court strengthen its competencies and institutional effi ciency, and to improve the quality and performance of its audit activities.
The peer review has helped it to: (1) develop and standardise its audit methodology and harmonise it with international standards; (2) strengthen the professional development
of its magistrates; and (3) identify areas for external support through a Twinning project. Importantly, the Court decided to publish the report on its website, contributing to the increased transparency and accountability of public institutions in Algeria. The review will now serve as the basis for the development and implementation of the next phase (2014-2017) of the Court’s strategic development plan, for which it has requested SIGMA support.
