The launch of the INTOSAI Global Survey has been postponed until September/October 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected us all around the world and SAIs are experiencing reduced capacity of work. Considering this, and in particular to ensure that we do not burden SAIs more than necessary at this challenging time. the launch of the survey has been postponed until the third quarter of 2020. While we do not know what the situation will look like in the coming months, we remain hopeful that postponing the Global Survey would help us obtain a response rate as high as in previous Global Surveys, as well as ensuring complete and SAI-wide responses. This would entail that the Global SAI Stocktaking Report 2020 will be published by second quarter of 2021.

We hope our colleagues from all around the world stay safe and healthy.

Warm regards,

The INTOSAI Global Survey Committee
