Priority 1: Strengthen SAI Independence
If SAIs are not properly recognised and resourced within their countries' legislative framework, it is difficult for them to create a good reputation within the community and with stakeholders. PASAI helps our members to strengthen their independence by advocating and lobbying Parliaments, Congresses and Governments to help them understand what SAIs need to be independent and to encourage strong legislative frameworks.
Priority 2: Advocacy to Strengthen Governance, Transparency and Accountability
PASAI has a long history of collaboration with other regional organisations that influence the public financial management cycle in Pacific Island countries. To improve the transparency and accountability of public financial management, we create regional partnerships to advocate for resources and expertise so that the public financial statements are available for auditing. We also advocate for audit reports to be presented to legislatures so they can be properly scrutinised and to ensure recommendations are actioned.
Priority 3: High Quality Audits Completed by Pacific SAIs
This is the central goal of our Strategic Plan. PASAI is committed to achieving a significant improvement in the timeliness and quality of the audits of the financial statements of government/whole of government financial audits. PASAI is also committed to ensuring our members are carrying out all their audit activities to the highest possible standard. All capacity building programmes and resources developed by the Secretariat are based on internationally recognised standards, including the International Standards of SAIs (ISSAIs), as required by the INCOSAI South Africa Declaration, 2010
Priority 5: PASAI Secretariat Capable of Supporting Pacific SAIs
Implementing our Strategic Plan requires a capable and professional Secretariat. We work hard to ensure the Secretariat's staff have the skills to support our members. The Secretariat is also focused on developing and storing information to ensure that examples, experience and best practice are available for members and other regions to use.
