Evaluations and reviews

Evaluations at the IDI reaffirm IDI’s commitment towards the capacity development of SAIs through continuous feedback and improvement. It represents the IDI’s effort to learn more systematically and rigorously. It also facilitates credible documentation of results and effectiveness. The IDI’s accomplishments depend on the ability to use evaluation results to strengthen efforts in supporting the work of SAIs and to refine decision-making. Besides the Mid-term Review of the Implementation of the current IDI Strategic Plan 2014-2018, several IDI programmes have been subject to internal and external evaluations.

The Mid-term Review of the IDI Strategic Plan 2014-2018 was conducted by Swedish Development Advisers and was very positive. The summary highlighted that:

The IDI has implemented a majority of its strategies and actions established from 2014 to 2017. In addition, the evidence shows that SAIs have made progress during the period towards ISSAI compliance as independent and accountable institutions. When designing capacity development programs, the IDI is highly sensitive to the needs of its stakeholders. The IDI has also implemented a series of important changes to the organization to become more efficient.

IDI has been successful in:

  • carrying out research, supporting and facilitating the work of the Task Group on INTOSAI Auditor Certification
  • building and establishing a Learning Management System and eLearning portal that is actively used
  • producing at least 16 tools, handbooks and guidance documents and developing a quality assurance process for Global Public Goods. A majority of SAIs in developing countries use the IDI’s tools and handbooks

The review included 12 recommendations in the areas of strategic priorities, programme design, development, delivery and monitoring. The IDI has already started to implement the recommendations and will continue implementing them in the next IDI Strategic Plan.
