Program Document for INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation Phase 3 Approved
The INTOSAI-Donor Steering Committee (SC) has approved the Program Document for phase 3 of the Cooperation.
In February, the INTOSAI-Donor Steering Committee (SC) approved the Program Document for phase 3 of the Cooperation. It was developed by a working group established at the 8th SC meeting which consisted of the European Commission, SECO, IDI and the INTOSAI-Donor Secretariat.
Based on the achievements of the Cooperation to date, the findings of the external evaluation and the discussions at the 8th SC meeting, the Program Document presents the planned scope and strategic direction of the Cooperation in 2016-2018. The results of a number of working groups established at the 8th SC meeting will be incorporated into an updated Program Document for consideration by the SC at its 2016 Annual Meeting.
The Cooperation’s program objective is to optimize the joint efforts of INTOSAI and Donor partners in enhancing the capacity of SAIs in developing countries. This will be sought achieved in phase 3 through the following key results:
1.Enhanced financial support for capacity development of SAIs in developing countries
2.Enhanced quality of knowledge on SAI development initiatives and performance
3.Enhanced tools and capacity development approaches
4.Increased awareness of the Cooperation and the needs of SAIs in developing countries
5.Strengthened donor and INTOSAI coordination and collaboration on SAI capacity development
The Program Document further presents a number of outputs which each comprise a number of activities. These will be defined in detail as part of annual work programs.
