HOW WILL IDI-WGEA SUPPORT SAIS IN CONTRIBUTING TO POSITIVE OUTCOMES?
IDI-WGEA will use IDI’s Cooperative Audit Support Model to provide holistic support to participating SAIs in planning, conducting, reporting, following up on the audit and facilitating audit impact. Such support will include:

The other resources section of the platform will provide a curated list of reading material and other contents for further exploration into the five thematic areas. We will provide holistic audit support to the SAI teams throughout the audit. Such support will include for:

Managing Audit Quality (2023-2024) Managing audit quality is the responsibility of the SAI. The SAI will be supported in managing the quality of the CCAA audit with advice from experts and peer and expert review at each stage of the audit. IDI will support SAIs in carrying out this responsibility effectively throughout the audit by providing guidance on managing audit quality as per the requirements of the updated ISSAI 140.
Facilitate Audit Impact (2023-2025) Throughout the CCAA audit IDI will support the SAI in mainstreaming impact considerations in the audit. IDI-WGEA will facilitate SAIs in achieving this impact by recommending an audit process that interweaves both quality and impact considerations throughout the audit. IDI’s checklist on audit impact through an individual audit provides a guide for the work on such considerations. SAIs will also be encouraged to engage with multi-stakeholders throughout the audit process. IDI will also help the SAI in determining follow up actions of the audit.
