Independent, effective and credible Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) are an essential component of political systems and indispensable to democracy-building. To hold governments to account and add value to citizens, SAIs must be able to maintain independence from the bodies they audit. When SAI Independence is threatened, institutional oversight activities can be impaired, weakening a country’s integrity and accountability systems and increasing democratic backsliding.
Civil society organisations ensure greater transparency and accountability of public resources and play a significant role in enhancing checks and balances in democracies. As such, IDI is looking forward to strengthening partnerships between the SAI and CSO communities to ensure SAI Independence features strongly in the fight against corruption.
