The Capacity Building Committee is the INTOSAI advocate and custodian for SAI capacity development. We facilitate initiatives in support of SAIs and regions building their capacities and enhancing their capabilities.

Dear CBC members and stakeholders,

New meeting registrations are coming in every day for the CBC Annual Meeting! Therefore please find below a glimpse of what is planned for the three CBC-intense September days ahead.

Having held the last three CBC annual meetings in South America, Europe and Africa, we are all looking forward to this year’s meeting taking place in North America, where we will be hosted by a key INTOSAI-partner, the World Bank, at its offices in Washington DC. The meeting will also this year be contiguous with the annual meeting of the steering committee of the INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation, and will take place on 18-21 September. 

For the part of the meeting dedicated to CBC-issues, three relevant themes have been chosen to anchor the activities of the 2017 CBC meeting:

accountability and transparency

On the first day, the six work streams of the CBC will deliberate on, and account for, the progress made in pursuing their respective objectives.  In line with the strategic plan adopted at XXII INCOSAI, the work stream and steering committee sessions will be open to all to join us in tracking the CBC’s progress in preparation for the Governing Board towards the end of the year.

consultation and collaboration

On the 2nd day, in line with a core value of the CBC, we will involve the key role players within INTOSAI, as well as key external stakeholders to join us in exploring how to continue identifying and prioritising opportunities for SAI capacity development.  

responsiveness and partnering’ 

In the morning of the third day, we will focus on a case of regional responsiveness to the need for enhanced professionalism, and in the afternoon a synergy session of the CBC and INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation will focus on the needs of SAIs in fragile situations.

 We wish you all welcome and look forward to seeing you in Washington soon!
