Self-assessing the extent to which your SAI is, or is not, independent will allow you to identify any current barriers to independence with the aim of removing the barriers through legislative or practical changes.
It will also allow you to benchmark your current state of independence against other SAIs.
There are two tools available that allow you to self-assess your current independence status – the SAI PMF self-assessment tool and the Victorian Auditor-General’s Office (VAGO) self-assessment tool.
You can find the SAI PMF self-assessment tool here.
You can find the VAGO self-assessment tool here.
