2012-2017 International Legislative Oversight Program (ILOP)

Performance audit and legislative oversight were at early stages in Cameroon during this five-year program. Prior to the ILOP, 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 was later appointed Secretary General of the SAI, in 2015.)

During the ILOP, the SAI began conducting performance and environmental audits launched through our program activities, including the Fellowships. Other areas of focus for our support included helping the SAI improve its quality control and assurance procedures and its communications and relationships with external stakeholders, including Parliament. The SAI was very active in regional and international activities throughout the five-year program. It hosted the Secretariats of both AFROSAI (African Organisation of SAIs) and CREFIAF (Organization of French-speaking Sub-Saharan African SAIs), and was the AFROSAI regional coordinator for the INTOSAI Working Group on Environmental Auditing.

The Office of the Auditor General (OAG) of Québec was a central partner in our work with Cameroon. The OAG hosted many of Cameroon’s Fellowship placements and often co-facilitated our workshops in Cameroon.

View the ILOP summary report for Cameroon (March 2018) for more information on the program’s activities and results in the country.

  • Slide 1

    Training supports Fellows’ audits

    With our partners, we held a series of performance audit courses in Cameroon, linked with the conduct of graduate Fellows’ audits. The Fellows led the audit teams and co-facilitated the training.

    Studying forensic accounting online

    Three auditors at the Cameroon SAI completed Algonquin College’s Forensic Accounting and Fraud Investigations program with our sponsorship: Valentine Bogando Onya, Guillaume Eboukele Mila, and Agbor Tarhabbey Adolf. They graduated in 2017.

  • Slide 3

    Environmental audit training and regional audit on Lake Chad

    The Cameroon SAI participated in a regional audit on the sustainable use of water resources in the Lake Chad basin with the SAIs of Chad, Niger and Nigeria. In support, we collaborated with GIZ to hold regional courses for the four SAIs.

    Graduate Fellows contribute to regional meeting

    The Cameroon SAI hosts the CREFIAF Secretariat, and many graduate Fellows are highly involved in regional initiatives. At the annual CREFIAF meeting in October 2015, four graduate Fellows made formal presentations.
