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.
Word from the Vice Chair
Let me start by thanking all CBC members – and not least our work stream leaders – for a productive year. We were very happy to see so many of you in Cape Town for the annual meeting, and equally pleased that you attended the CBC main committee meeting, CBC seminar and CBC booth in connection with INCOSAI in Abu Dhabi.
We are very pleased that all the CBC work streams are recognized as important components of both INTOSAI’s professionalization agenda and within the context of SAIs’ work with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Cooperative audits are an important vehicle for international cooperation and comparisons within the context of the SDGs as well as a potential tool for professionalization when the audit is integrated with training. The SAI Performance Measurement Framework (a new member of the CBC family) and the peer review approach are absolutely central to SAIs leading by example. In addition, IntoSAINT, as the recognized tool to assess integrity of SAIs, supports the transparency and accountability of the office and is an important key to trust in the SAI and its results.
For details on the motions approved by the congress, please see the The Abu Dhabi Declaration. I can also highly recommend seeing the films developed to promote for Congress the competency framework, IntoSAINT and the SAI PMF. We would especially like to thank SAI Netherlands for their work and welcome SAI Mexico as the new work stream leader for IntoSAINT.
We also look forward to working closely with the IDI in our new role as INTOSAI’s strategic governance lead of the SAI PMF. We welcome our continued partnership and embrace the chance to, together, make the most of capacity development opportunities for INTOSAI, the regions and SAIs.
I wish you all the best for 2017!
