The SAI Performance Measurement Framework (SAI PMF) is an international framework for self, peer, or external assessment of a SAI’s performance against the International Standards of Supreme Audit Institutions (ISSAIs) and other established international good practices, thereby enabling the SAI to confidently engage internally and externally regarding its future. It has been developed under the auspices of the INTOSAI Working Group on the Value and Benefits of SAIs, with valuable support from the INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation, to be implemented under INTOSAI ownership in collaboration with the donor community.
About SAI PMF
- The SAI PMF can be applied in all types of SAIs, regardless of SAI models, mandate, national context and development level, so long as the SAI considers the ISSAIs as a relevant benchmark.
- The SAI PMF examines holistically both the SAI’s audit and non-audit functions in relation to its legal foundation and environment, identifying interdependencies between different aspects and root causes of SAI performance, thereby providing a strong basis for comprehensively assessing the SAI’s needs, informing its’ strategic and capacity development planning, and enabling tracking of progress over time.
- The SAI PMF is a valuable tool for all SAIs, regardless of development level, to demonstrate to stakeholders the extent to which the SAI contributes to strengthening public financial management, promoting good governance, fostering transparency and accountability, and fighting corruption, and ultimately the SAIs’ commitment to increasing their value and benefits to society.
- For developing country SAIs, the SAI PMF is an invaluable tool for obtaining and maintaining support for its capacity development efforts by showing their commitment to transform, acceptance of the need to adhere to the highest international standards, and the SAIs’ commitment to increasing their value and benefits to society.
