PASAI Audit Institutions Develop Strategic Plans

The audit institutions in the Pacific region attended a workshop in Nuku’alofa, Tonga on 23 - 27 April 2018 to develop their strategic plans and related operational plans. The plans were based on the results of the evaluation of their offices through the INTOSAI performance measurement framework (SAI PMF). The workshop covered the whole strategic planning process which is part of the INTOSAI global programme on Strategy, Performance Measurement and Reporting (SPMR). The SPMR programme not only focuses on the strategic planning cycle but on the strategic management cycle, including performance measurement and reporting.
Twenty-six participants from 11 government audit offices (or SAIs) attended the workshop from Cook Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia – National Office and the state audit offices of Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Samoa, Guam, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Tuvalu. All but two of the audit institutions were also represented by their Auditors-General or Public Auditors.
The workshop was facilitated by Freddy Yves Ndjemba, Dafina Dimitrova, and Shofiqul Islam from the INTOSAI Development Intiative (IDI), assisted by Sarah Markley from the New Zealand Office of the Auditor-General, and Tiofilusi Tiueti, Sinaroseta Palamo-Iosefo and Eroni Vatuloka from the Pacific Association of Supreme Audit Institutions (PASAI).

The Pacific is one of the two INTOSAI regions piloting this global programme whose objective is to ensure audit institutions develop and maintain a strategic planning and management process, that enables them to achieve strategic outcomes and deliver value and benefits to the citizens.
Participants appreciated the importance of a strategically managed SAI in its mission to lead by example and add value to society, making a difference to the lives of citizens.
The participants will meet again in October 2018 to evaluate their draft strategic plans to ensure development outcomes are realistic and can be supported by their governments and development partners.
PASAI acknowledges the financial support by the IDI, Australia Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade to conduct this strategic management programme for SAIs in the Pacific region.
