Focus Areas

Audit impact and quality


We empower SAIs for greater audit impact and quality

By proactively developing technical guidance, we support over 10,000 auditors in the region to comply with the ISSAIs and respond to emerging issues.

Strengthening SAI organisational capabilities


Our strategic goal of transforming SAIs’ organisational capabilities has three objectives:

  • Helping SAIs to instil results-driven stakeholder relationships
  • Improving SAI leadership and organisational capability for transformational excellence
  • Ensuring the SAI has highly skilled, productive, professional, and engaged staff

Six focus areas have been identified as critical to achieving these objectives. Within each focus area, several capacity-building initiatives, from guides to workshops to programmes, are available to assist a SAI to transform its organisational capabilities for greater impact.
