INTOSAI–The Global SAI Stocktaking Report 2017

The Global SAI Stocktaking Report 2017 has been published on the IDI website.

The Global Stocktaking Report integrates the results of the INTOSAI Global Survey 2017, as well as relevant findings from an analysis of other data sources, including PEFA assessments, the Open Budget Survey, and SAI PMF assessments. The report also tracks changes over time against the IDI Global SAI Stocktaking Report 2014 and the seminal 2010 Stocktaking Report prepared by the INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation.

The report has been published in two volumes. The stocktaking report highlights key findings in the areas of SAI Independence, SAI organizational systems and professionalization and SAI capacity development. It also summarises performance of SAIs within each INTOSAI region, and provides comparative information on the INTOSAI Regional Organizations. The Annex volume provides a statistical annex of key indicators by income and regional classification, and a more detailed presentation and analysis of the data.

SAIs across the globe face a multitude of challenges towards strengthening their capacities and performance to deliver value and benefits for citizens. They often operate in constrained environments, with legislatures that do not fully support and use their work, and where basic systems of transparency and accountability are lacking. Many SAIs face significant independence challenges, especially on financial independence (where executive interference is reported to have increased since 2014), and lack the resources to fulfil their mandates.
