Our Strategic Plan and its Implementation

IDI’s 2019-2023 Strategic Plan

IDI’s Strategic Plan for 2019-2023 spells out our ambition for the next five years to remain the leading INTOSAI implementing body to support Supreme Audit Institutions in developing countries. It clarifies how we plan to support them in sustainably enhancing their performance and capacities.

We take the needs and challenges of Supreme Audit Institutions in developing countries as a starting point (based on the Global SAI Stocktaking 2017) and aim for more sustainability and impact. The IDI Strategic Plan 2019-2023 builds on:

  • Needs and Challenges face by SAIs
  • IDI’s own experience
  • Feedback and involvement of key stakeholders
  • A review of implementation of the previous Strategic Plan.

The Strategic Plan introduces two major strategic shifts:

  • A move from short-term programmes to four long-term work streams: This will provide scaled-up, holistic, tailored support to SAIs in the areas of independence, governance, professionalism and relevance.
  • Full integration of a gender perspective throughout the Strategic Plan.

The IDI 2019-2023 Strategic Plan is also available in Arabic, French, and Spanish

Our Operational Plans and Budgets

We implement our Strategic Plan through annual Operational Plans and budgets. 

The Operational Plans contain detailed plans for IDI’s work streams, bilateral support and Global Foundations. The Operational Plans are linked to the budget for the respective years. 

The budget shows projected funding sources and planned expenditures for the different IDI strategic priorities. Budgets are reviewed and where necessary updated during the year, especially when there are major changes to funding sources and planned expenditures.

The IDI Board approves both plans and budgets in October / November each year. 

IDI’s 2020 Operational Plan

The 2020 Operational Plan was amended half-way through the year due to COVID-19. Both the original 2020 Operational Plan and the amended version (2020 Operational Plan Addendum) are available for download on the right.

Budgets 

Each November, the IDI Board approves an annual budget for implementation of the Operational Plan for the following year. These show projected funding sources and planned expenditures for the different IDI Strategic Priorities. Budgets are reviewed and where necessary updated during the year, especially when there are major changes to funding sources and planned expenditures. From 2019, IDI has decided to publish its initial annual budget and its final revised budget.
