CAROSAI undertook a survey in July 2016 to determine the mandate, needs and priorities of all its members, Procurement Audit was identified as a critical capacity building need of fifteen SAIs. Arising from this stated need, the Secretariat, through the joint support of the World Bank (WB) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) will be spearheading a cooperative audit on procurement.
The programme of activities commenced with a workshop in Jamaica on May 29, 2017 . The workshop is scheduled to end on Friday June 2, 2017. This workshop will be followed by the audit planning phase which is expected to be completed in July 2017. The audit planning and execution phase will be managed by the IDI trained regional facilitators through the use of an eLearning platform which is being developed by the INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI) for CAROSAI.
