Our partnership with the National Audit Office of Tanzania, the country’s supreme audit institution (SAI), dates as far back as Tanzania’s first Fellowship placement in 1982–83 and intensified as of 2001–02. Under our current program, we are helping the SAI to further grow its performance audit practice, improve the quality of its audits, and increase the impact of its audit reports by strengthening relationships between the SAI and key stakeholders. The program also continues to work with Tanzania’s two parliamentary oversight committees, within the context of the October 2015 election, helping them build their capacity to review performance audit reports and support the implementation of related recommendations.
Since the beginning of the current program, in 2012, the SAI has hired 30 new performance auditors and we are directly involved in training nearly all of them. With its growing team of trained performance auditors, the SAI has advanced from completing five performance audits in 2012–13 to completing 10 in 2015–16. Graduate Fellows are leaders within the performance audit department and are co-facilitating regional workshops as AFROSAI-E (African Organisation of English-speaking SAIs) champions.
