The SAI Performance Measurement Framework (SAI PMF) is an international framework for self, peer, or external assessment of a SAI’s performance against the International Standards of Supreme Audit Institutions (ISSAIs) and other established international good practices, thereby enabling the SAI to confidently engage internally and externally regarding its future. It has been developed under the auspices of the INTOSAI Working Group on the Value and Benefits of SAIs, with valuable support from the INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation, to be implemented under INTOSAI ownership in collaboration with the donor community.

Supreme Audit Institutions cannot be effective without the trust of our auditees, parliaments and citizens. Trust needs to be earned, therefore the (perceived) integrity of the SAI is a crucial factor. That is why SAIs need IntoSAINT, a tool to assess the vulnerabilities and the maturity of the integrity controls of SAIs and to strengthen integrity in SAIs. Once the SAI sets the example, the focus can shift to integrity of the public sector of the SAI’s country.

The CBC IntoSAINT workstream supports the global roll–out of the IntoSAINT–tool.

As per 2017 the objectives of the workstream are :

  • Broad recognition of IntoSAINT as a capacity building and assessment tool for SAIs
  • Worldwide application of IntoSAINT in order to strengthen integrity in SAIs and the public sector;
  • Mainstream IntoSAINT in SAIs and regional organizations’ strategies and operations;
  • Demonstrate added value by developing a monitoring system and actively promoting experiences and best practices via existing INTOSAI communications channels;
  • Ensure synergies between IntoSAINT roll–out and regional activities to support INTOSAI–P 12 and to implement SAI–PMF, ISSAI 30 and the IDI Fraud and Corruption programme.
  • Continue lobbying for SAIs to dedicate own budget as well as for donor support to fund the roll–out of IntoSAINT.

SAIs in fragile contexts were initially discussed at the CBC annual meeting in Lima, Peru in 2014, at the initiative of CREFIAF. As a result of those discussions, a small task group was set up to explore the issues and propose a way forward. That task group consisted of representatives from the SAIs of the Netherlands, Sierra Leone, the United Kingdom and Sweden, and from the IDI. Their work resulted in the creation of a workstream, which includes the SAIs of Afghanistan, Liberia, Netherlands, Norway, Sierra Leone, Sudan and Sweden, as well as IDI, as members.

The initial terms of reference was approved by the CBC Steering Committee during the CBC Annual Meeting in Cape Town in October 2016 and endorsed by INCOSAI in Abu Dhabi two months later. The priorities of the workstream are based on experiences by SAIs currently or previously working in states in different levels of fragility, and by donors and partners working with SAIs in such contexts. The experiences have been collected through a selection of interviews and discussions as well as reports and articles.

The work stream held its first meeting in conjunction with the CBC meeting in Washington D.C. in September 2017 and now holds regular skype meetings.

A revised terms of reference was approved by the CBC Steering Committee during its meeting in Kuwait in 2018.

The INTOSAI CBC Meeting in Stockholm in 2015 established a working group to manage the CBC guide series. The aim of the series is to share good practices related to managing SAIs. The guides are not intended to duplicate or substitute the work of the Professional Standards Committee on ISSAIs.

The work stream is responsible for:

  • Management of the production and maintenance of CBC Guides;
  • Management of the production and maintenance of Occasional Papers;
  • Monitoring the continued relevance of individual guides and updating or removing these as necessary;
  • Identifying new products to include on the website where deemed relevant;
  • Commissioning blogs on capacity building of SAIs; and
  • Developing a dissemination strategy to increase the impact and use of the guides and other publications.

In line with INTOSAI’s crosscutting priorities and the strategic objectives defined for
the CBC in the INTOSAI Strategic Plan 2017–2022, the work stream for peer-to-peer
cooperation was established to achieve CBC’s key strategy 9:

Support and promote medium to long term peer–to–peer cooperation between SAIs in support of institutional capacity development

The work stream aims to achieve this through:

  • Encouraging INTOSAI members to share their experiences of peer–to–peer cooperation through blogs and articles on the CBC website, the INTOSAI Journal and elsewhere;
  • Creating opportunities to exchange experiences of peer–to–peer cooperation;
  • Gathering and sharing information about peer–to–peer cooperation through the CBC website and otherwise;
  • Identifying and sharing good practice in peer–to–peer cooperation;
  • Promoting the use of peer–to–peer cooperation.

In line with INTOSAI’s crosscutting priorities and the strategic objectives defined for the CBC in the INTOSAI Strategic Plan 2017–2022, the RFCD was established to achieve the INTOSAI Goal 2 objective of "promoting the development of capabilities and professional capacities of independent SAIs and Regional Organizations" and in particular the CBC’s key strategy of –

Providing a regional community of practice – the Regional Forum for Capacity Development – to share and address issues relating to regional capacity development and regional professionalism at a cross–regional and strategic level.

The Forum strives to achieve this, amongst others, through:

  • Building upon, leveraging, and facilitating cooperation and professionalism among the regional organizations of INTOSAI.
  • Promoting the INTOSAI Framework for Regional Professionalism a framework that identifies four strategic dimensions that characterise the essence of what a value-adding regional organisation should strive towards in supporting the strengthening of its members SAIs and the regional body itself.
  • Providing opportunities to Regional Organisations to share case studies on how they go about strengthening their professionalism and serving the interests of their member SAIs.
