SAIs have an essential role to play in promoting the transparency, accountability, efficiency, and effectiveness of public administration. Due to their central role in a country’s public finance system, SAIs are paramount to achieving national development objectives and priorities and internationally agreed development goals, including the SDGs. The INTOSAI principles and UN resolutions on SAI independence clearly state the need for SAIs to be independent to execute their external public audit mandate effectively.
The objective of the assignment: To develop a model audit act for SAIs in the AFROSAI-E region. The model audit act will complement guidelines on SAI independence being developed. The aim is for the model act to also raise awareness of the importance of SAI independence across national, regional and continental actors, thereby building an alliance of actors becoming champions of this cause.
