Pocket Guide for SAIs – Considerations for Responses to Disasters

The Pocket Guide is pitched at a strategic level with an objective to give strategic level guidance to SAIs on considerations to be taken, when preparing and responding to disaster situations throughout the three phases of a disaster cycle. It goes on to give prominence to some fundamental audit practices such as remote auditing and real-time audits.

Through the issuance of this Pocket Guide, AFROSAI-E and the GIZ GFG programme have empowered SAIs in the INTOSAI community with yet another tool and opportunity to remain relevant during disaster situations in a manner which gives value and benefits to the citizens of their countries.
