IDI has just released an online survey on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the independence of Supreme Audit Institutions. The survey has been sent to SAIs around the world and is available in four languages: Arabic, English, French and Spanish.
The objective of the survey is to assess whether and how the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the independence of SAIs, in the period from March 2020 to June 2021. The survey seeks to complement the information collected through the INTOSAI Global Survey.
Survey results will be analysed, consolidated, and shared through a report on the impact of the global pandemic on SAI independence. The report will include aggregated data at global and regional levels. Individual SAI responses will be kept confidential and may only be shared with the consent of the SAI.
SAIs interest in reading throguh the survey before answering can find a print copy here.
