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.
