Ghana


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.

  • Slide 1

    Online learning: Forensic accounting

    We are sponsoring three auditors’ participation in the Forensic Accounting and Fraud Investigations graduate certificate program, offered online by Algonquin College:  Charles Brown Ahlijah, Emily Buadoo, and Julian Danquah Ofosuh. They will graduate in 2017. 

  • Slide 2

    Graduate Fellows co-facilitate regional training

    Alberta Owoo (2010-11) and Monalisa Lotsu (2013-14) each co-facilitated a recent delivery of a three-module performance audit course held that we held with AFROSAI-E.

     

    Pictured: Alberta Owoo, whom AFROSAI-E selected as the course leader for a delivery in Tanzania in 2015-2016. She led a team of facilitators from Canada, the Netherlands, and other African SAIs to deliver training for 31 participants.

  • Slide 3

    Auditing gender equality

    Graduate Fellow Monalisa Lotsu (2013-14) is championing gender equality at her SAI. With our program’s training and mentoring, she included gender equality criteria in her Fellowship audit plan on vocational training. She has since presented to the 2014-15 and 2015-16 classes of Fellows on her experience conducting this audit, which was the SAI’s first audit to explicitly address gender equality issues.

    Environmental auditing workshop

    With our partners we held a highly successful environmental auditing workshop in Ghana in March 2015. Several graduate Fellows contributed to the planning and delivery.
