How many of these SAIs to be supported by the Tier 2 Partners is expected to be clarified in mid-2018.

Partnership established with regional grouping of Accountants General

The chief executive officers of AFROSAI-E, PAFA and ESAAG recently met to discuss the professionalisation initiative currently being led by AFROSAI-E and PAFA. The initiative aims to professionalise public sector accounting and auditing in Africa. An invitation was extended to ESAAG members to participate in the work as partners with AFROSAI-E and PAFA. This would include nominating ESAAG members to serve on the Interim Oversight Board (IOB) on the Professionalisation of Public Sector Accounting and Auditing in Africa. This is in line with the terms of reference of the IOB which envisages ESAAG as being founding members of the IOB.
