The INTOSAI Database of Experts (EDB) has been restructured in a new, friendlier platform, with new search filters and access levels to make it easier for the INTOSAI community to identify experts who could provide technical assistance to SAIs under mutual agreement.

The database of experts can be accessed here.

2015 Accountability and Transparency Project is underway 

PASAI's 2015 Accountability and Transparency (A&T) project is now in full swing. The A&T Report is one of PASAI’s key publications. This year’s report will be central to our advocacy activities under the Long-Term Strategy. Data from the report will also be of great value in monitoring the success of our combined efforts in implementing the strategy.

A questionnaire is the primary mechanism for gathering information from across our membership. The questionnaire is for PASAI members only and has been designed to be completed by all SAI Heads (except those of Australia and New Zealand). It can be completed online.

New release - Regional Cooperative Performance Audit Report

Cover page Climate Change Coop Audit FINAL-670-562

PASAI is pleased to present the consolidated result of our audit work in the Report of the Coordinated Pacific Region Performance Audit: Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction Strategies and Management. Audit findings from the eight published audit reports have been clustered around the key performance themes of governance arrangements, project implementation, and monitoring and reporting.

The audit was a combined effort involving the INTOSAI Development Initiative, the Asian Development Bank, and PASAI. Australia’s Victorian Auditor-General’s Office provided support to audit teams under the ACAG/PASAI twinning arrangements. The PASAI Regional Working Group on Environmental Auditing also supported this coordinated audit. The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program provided specialist technical expertise on climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction measures in the Pacific. The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program also supported audit teams with technical climate change matters over the course of their audits.

This report is useful for Pacific Island governments, regional stakeholders and environmental organisations involved in climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.
