Assessment and ongoing improvement

Assessment and ongoing improvement involve using a variety of tools and processes to test or measure compliance with the requirements defined in the standards of the profession, and to measure the performance of the SAI holistically. SAIs should measure their and their staff’s performance – the SAI Performance Measurement Framework (SAI PMF) is the preferred tool for measuring the performance of a SAI.
