SAI shared experiences

Many Pacific SAIs are currently trying to broaden their mandate and the resource kit intends to provide relevant information to help SAIs do this. It was felt that it would also be useful to have a facility to learn from the experiences other SAIs have had seeking broader independence. Accordingly, we intend to use this page as an opportunity to share SAI experiences and highlight matters that SAIs have previously faced relating to independence.
