What is a SAI PMF repeat assessment?

It is an assessment of a SAI which has previously assessed its performance using the SAI PMF. A repeat assessment is particularly useful when a SAI wants to monitor its progress in performance over time, for instance, its strategic plan period. 

Who is the target group of this course?

It is open to all interested individuals and can be taken at any time convenient to the learner. This course is designated to be taken by anyone planning to conduct a repeat assessment, whether SAI staff, consultants or others. If you are currently not planning to conduct a repeat assessment, it can still be helpful to take the course to enhance your SAI PMF expertise and acquire a better understanding of the specificities of a repeat assessment. 

It is important to note that this course is intended to cover only part of the SAI PMF methodology related to key aspects of a repeat assessment. It is a prerequisite that you have previous SAI PMF knowledge and already have a good understanding of the following subject areas:

  • SAI PFM process
  • SAI PMF scoring methodology
  • SAI PMF framework and the areas that are being assessed
  • How to analyse the SAI PMF results through a root cause analysis and presentation in the SAI PMF performance report.
