In February, IDI and the International Budget Partnership (BP) signed a Strategic Partnership Agreement, out of mutual recognition of a shared vision and belief that synergies would better enable both partners to better achieve their goals. The partnership will advocate for independent and effective SAIs as essential to good public budgeting, effective governance and reducing poverty. It will also support effective engagement between SAIs, legislative and civil society in order to enhance accountability, audit impact and make a difference to the lives of citizens.
Specifically, IDI and IBP will support each others’ work in four main areas:
- The IBP’s Open Budget Survey and the IDI’s Global SAI Stocktaking
- IDI’s SAIs Engaging with Stakeholders Initiative
- IBP’s Audit Accountability Initiative & IDI’s Facilitating Audit Impact (FAI) initiative
- Advocating for SAI Independence
