The Technical Commission on Good Governance Practices (CTBG) – in coordination with Mexico’s SAI which is responsible for the project – is making progress with the application of the Tool for the Self-assessment of Integrity (IntoSAINT) amongst OLACEFS SAIs.
IntoSAINT is an initiative that allows SAIs to analyse risks, focusing on integrity, to assess the maturity level of internal control systems, enhance institutional capacities and promote good governance. The project allows the staff of an audit body to make recommendations to senior management in order to consolidate the management of organisational integrity. To date, nine SAIs in the region have implemented IntoSAINT Workshops, namely Belize, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Uruguay.
On June 23 the call was issued for the Implementation of IntoSAINT Workshops, which will provide the opportunity to organise at least five workshops for OLACEFS SAIs in 2016. The deadline for applications is July 17 and the selection of participating SAIs will be based on the Criteria for the Prioritisation of SAIs with greater needs 2016. It is hoped that through these workshops more SAIs in the region will discover the value and benefits of the tool, which creates institutional capacities in those organisations that implement it.
