The INTOSAI Governing Board has recognized the following seven Regional Organizations:

AFROSAI-E is the English language subgroup of AFROSAI, the African branch of the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions. After existing as an informal association since its inception in 1998, AFROSAI-E was formally established on 1 January 2005 by the adoption of a set of statutes and regulations by the heads of its twenty-three member SAIs. The Southern African Development Community Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (SADCOSAI) was incorporated into AFROSAI-E at the same time.
All activities carried out by AFROSAI-E and its Secretariat are focused on capacity building in the region. An institutional Capacity Building Framework (available on the AFROSAI-E webiste) has been developed to support the formulation of goals and objectives and to direct the activities. Plans, manuals, guidelines etc. developed for the region and workshops carried out are based on the framework.
Institutional strengthening has always been an important element of the majority of AFROSAI-E projects. Support and capacity building within existing Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) can help improve service delivery, empower SAIs and promote sustainable use of resources.
