Empowering audits: OAG Somalia’s journey towards a modern and independent audit law

20 February 2024

Navigating the audit bill process in a challenging context

In this interesting CBC/ACCC webinar colleagues of SAI Somalia shared their experiences from how they recently achieved a significant milestone by getting their audit bill signed into law last September. The journey towards establishing this legal framework faced numerous challenges, including political complexities within the country. Ms Mariam Abdirazak Awale (Special Assistant to the Auditor General) and Mr Said Birmad Egal (Legal Advisor of the OAG) took us through how they overcome challenges and successfully steered the bill to approval. The webinar highlights the resilience of SAI Somalia and serves as a source of inspiration for other SAIs striving to establish their legal frameworks. Listen to the story behind the importance of this achievement, using this pass code: P8qV8&*k and the link below.

ACCC visit to: SAI Sudan

2 March 2023

As a young state with a troubled history, South Sudan is faced with several economic, political, security and humanitarian challenges. Through the ACCC webinar, we are visiting the National Audit Chamber of South Sudan (NAC), where we will talk to the Deputy Auditor General, Mr Tombe Logale Lukaka, about their resolve and determination to overcome the challenges their country is facing. The NAC operates in a highly unpredictable and challenging environment. Government funds for salaries and audit operations are insufficient and political support for a strong audit office is unpredictable. Most government agencies do not have financial statements to be audited and yet despite such a challenging environment, the NAC finds ways to fulfill their mission in the society.

In many countries Parliaments are our key stakeholders.
