Providers of Support:
This proposal was partly supported.
The Office of the Auditor General of Norway supported the proposal through the revision/update of their Performance Audit Manual with a workshop in March 2014. The effort was coordinated through AFROSAI-E. A regional expert from the SAI of Ghana was also part of the project, financed by OAGN.
The work was supposed to start in October 2012, but was delivered in 2014.
The Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India is providing staff and facilities towards this program, subject to the availability of donor funding for other program costs. A donor was initial interested in providing financial support, but this has not been taken forward.
Some training programs were funded under the Zimbabwe A-MDTF being administred by the World Bank. The next phase of support will start only after the new government is sworn in. The World Bank support is covering parts of component 2 in the proposal.
Need for Effective Coordination: In reviewing the proposal, a number of potential providers highlighted the need to ensure effective coordination with existing support arrangements, and to avoid establishing parallel support mechanisms.
Infrastructure and other capital costs in the proposal: The proposal includes considerable capital and IT costs, such as vehicles, audit software, licenses and financial management systems, for which no potential providers of support have yet expressed interest.
