The Netherlands Court of Audit publishes an online course on Integrity for SAIs and Public Sector Organisations

Integrity is crucial to good governance and contributes to citizens’ trust in public institutions. Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) should lead by example in strengthening government accountability, transparency, and integrity.

IntoSAINT for SAIs or SAINT for Public Sector Institutions (PSOs) serves as a valuable integrity self-assessment tool for these institutions, facilitating the assessment of the integrity within their respective organisations. This tool aids in identifying vulnerabilities and internal controls to mitigate risks, thereby uncovering potential gaps. Ultimately, it provides recommendations to bolster organisational integrity, primarily focusing on preventing corruption.

IntoSAINT or SAINT consists of a two —to three-day workshop led by two external and certified moderators. In this online course, you will first explore the concept of integrity in depth, learn more about the application of the IntoSAINT for SAIs or SAINT for PSOs, and learn how to become an external moderator for an integrity self-assessment.

Upon completing the online course, participants can take a final online examination. Achieving a 90% or higher score qualifies you for enrolment in a face-to-face moderators training programme.
