From 2018 to 2020,  IDI and AFROSAI-E are partnering with the Auditor General of Zimbabwe to strengthen its strategic management systems and initiate long-term capacity development projects.

A team of peers — from the IDI, AFROSAI-E and the Office of the Auditor General of Ghana — are working closely with the Auditor General and his staff to:

  • undertake a mid-term review of the strategic plan 
  • strengthening the operational plan
  • formalize monitoring and reporting procedures
  • improve the SAI annual performance reporting
  • build more effective relationships with external partners, including key stakeholders and development support providers
  • develop project proposals for long-term capacity development support

As AFROSAI-E, we are very pleased about the new agreements”, says AFROSAI-E Chief Executive Officer Mrs Meisie Nkau. “It is exciting to see the needs of our SAIs matched to opportunities (readiness of the SAIs to received structured support and availability of the support). We are delighted to be part of the group that will be coordinating support to these SAIs and demonstrate the benefits of coordinated efforts. We are dedicated to work with these SAIs and to build on the good relations and trust we’ve established from many years of capacity development in the region.”

The support is provided as a part of the Accelerated Peer-Support Partnership programme (PAP-APP). It benefits from funds provided by the Austrian Development Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iceland, and IDI basket funds.
