Making A Difference In The Performance Of SAIs



Whats New?

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.

Strengthening regional cooperation with ARABOSAI MoU

Regional Working Groups supporting each other to grow capacity and thereby being better enabled to support their member SAIs, is a great example of living the INTOSAI motte of “mutual experience benefits all”. In this spirit, AFROSAI-E and ARABOSAI has signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate on issues related to promoting good governance, particularly the strengthening of accountability, transparency, and integrity.

African professionalisation initiative discussed at INTOSAI CBC and TFIAP

The AFROSAI-E Executive Secretariat had the opportunity to share their work in regional professionalisation at the recent INTOSAI Capacity Building Committee (CBC) meeting held at the World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC during September 2017. The presentation provided context to the work being performed by AFROSAI-E in partnership with the Pan African Federation of Accountants (PAFA) and the East and Southern African Association of Accountants General (ESAAG). This collaborative initiative aims to support professionalisation efforts across the African continent in both auditing and accounting in the public sector.

Enhancements in competency framework for professional public sector accountants and auditors

The professionalisation of African public sector accounting and auditing takes another step forward.

The African Organisation of English-speaking Supreme Institutions (AFROSAI-E), the Pan African Federation of Accountants (PAFA) and the East and Southern African Association of Accountants General (ESAAG) are partnering to drive professionalisation in African public sectors. This partnership will result in the establishment of coordinating structures to oversee and support professionalisation efforts across the continent. An interim oversight board (IOB) has been established to begin this work.
