New partnership to strengthen challenged SAIs
IDI, AFROSAI-E and CREFIAF have established a partnership to contribute to the greater performance of the most challenged SAIs.
This partnership has been established to follow the new Tier 2 initiative of the Global Call for Proposals (GCP). The SAIs included in the initiative are The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Madagascar, Guinea, Togo and Niger (French-speaking, CREFIAF members), Eritrea, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone and Gambia (English speaking, AFROSAI-E members). How many of these SAIs to be supported by the Tier 2 Partners is expected to be clarified in mid-2018.
The time-frame for the Partnership is five years with a possible extension of five more years. The Partnership is planned for two phases:
“We are confident that this process will be beneficial to the SAIs in the GCP Tier 2 and will attract sufficient support from the donor community to enable the desired and sustainable impact.”- Mrs. Meisie Nkau, Chief Executive of AFROSAI-E
“CREFIAF is excited about the new partnership. We will now be able to work closely with the five selected SAIs in our region. Our hope is to both inspire and enable them to grow as strong accountability institutions in their countries. CREFIAF also hopes the partnership will enable greater regional capacity for increased support to other SAIs in the region in the future.”- Mrs. MBAH ACHA Rose FOMUNDAM, President of CRRI
“I am very pleased with the establishment of the tri-party cooperation, the first of its kind in INTOSAI, and I really believe that together we can provide timely, relevant and high-quality support to the SAIs identified in GCP Tier 2 process by the INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation”- Mr. Ola Hoem, Deputy Director General of IDI
