The Ghana Audit Service, the country’s supreme audit institution (SAI), has been conducting performance audits since 2002 and made significant progress during our previous five-year program (2007-2012). The current program is assisting the SAI to further improve the quality of its performance audits and to increase the impact of its audit reports. There is a strong team of graduate Fellows at the office, who are leaders in performance auditing and environmental auditing. Several of the graduate Fellows have been recognized as AFROSAI-E (African Organisation of English-speaking SAIs) champions and now often co-facilitate regional performance audit workshops. We are also assisting the SAI in the integration of strategic planning, operational planning, performance measurement, and reporting on its performance.
Workshops for the Public Accounts Committee are continuing under the current program. We held one workshop in 2014 and will deliver more training in the context of the December 2016 election. The SAI’s performance audit reports are being tabled in Parliament and reviewed by the Public Accounts Committee.
