The year-long IDI/CAROSAI SAI PMF facilitation programme launched on 7 May 2020 has been successfully completed, and closed officially on 7 July 2021 with a virtual meeting.
With a group of SAIs from the CAROSAI region all conducting SAI PMF assessments at the same time, the participating SAIs - namely Aruba, Belize, Dominica and St Lucia - were able to share their experiences and learn from each other as peers.
The SAI PMF assessments were conducted as self-assessments. IDI provided continuous remote support to the entire assessment process by allocating a mentor to each assessment team. This mode of delivering the facilitated programme resulted in high quality performance reports, as evidenced by the findings of the independent reviewers.
The dedication to the assessment demonstrated by SAI leadership and the assessment teams was exemplary. This combination of three factors - continuous remote mentorship by IDI, SAI leadership support and the commitment of the assessment teams- were the key drivers for the successful completion of the regional facilitation programme.
The Heads of SAI are delighted to have the final independently reviewed SAI PMF reports. They have expressed their commitment to putting measures in place within their SAIs, to further strengthen areas where performance is good and close the gaps in the areas that need to be improved.
