Performance audit and legislative oversight are at early stages in Cameroon. Prior to our current program (2012-2017), the country’s supreme audit institution (SAI), le Contrôle Supérieure de l’État, had conducted one performance audit. It was directed by graduate Fellow Pauline Kane Fortune and was a pilot for the SAI and for the region. Ms. Kane Fortune now holds a senior position at the office, as Secretary General. The SAI is currently conducting performance and environmental audits launched through our program activities, including the Fellowships. Other areas of focus for our support are quality control and assurance, performance measurement, and the SAI’s communications and relationships with external stakeholders, including Parliament and its Commission des Finances. The SAI is very active in regional and international activities. It hosts the Secretariats of both AFROSAI (African Organisation of SAIs) and CREFIAF (Organization of French-speaking Sub-Saharan African SAIs), and is the AFROSAI regional coordinator for the INTOSAI Working Group on Environmental Auditing.
The Office of tha Auditor General (OAG) of Québec is a central partner in our work with Cameroon. The OAG hosts many of Cameroon’s Fellowship placements and often co-facilitates our workshops in Cameroon.
