The applications for LOTA Pioneers 2023-2024 are now open!

LOTA Pioneers is an initiative that aims to facilitate the transformation of a pool of SAI auditors into change agents who bring technology to SAI’s audit world by scanning their internal and external audit environments to strategize for leveraging on technology in audits and auditing the use of technology by governments.

To begin with this initiative will be offered in English for up to 25 SAIs. Each SAI is requested to nominate two persons from different leadership levels in the SAI. While one will act as LOTA Pioneer (Strategy), the other will act as LOTA Pioneer (Audit).

Besides creating a pool of LOTA Pioneers, this initiative is expected to result in LOTA scans, LOTA strategies and LOTA audits at the participating SAI level.

Those candidates who successfully complete their education, LOTA scan / strategy and audit will graduate as IDI’s LOTA Pioneers and become a part of an alumni network.
