As part of the 2016-2018 Regional Implementation Plan for the IntoSAINT tool, the Technical Commission on Good Governance Practices (CTBG) announced the call for applications for Workshops on Integrity Self-Assessment in SAIs (IntoSAINT) 2017, for full members of OLACEFS.

This initiative has been adopted by INTOSAI in collaboration with SAIs of the seven regional organizations, including OLACEFS. Within OLACEFS, 16 SAIs (72% of the members) have valued and benefited from the tool, namely: Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. As such OLACEFS is the regional INTOSAI organization that has made the greatest progress in terms of implementation and is a benchmark in the field for other regions.

As part of its 2017 Annual Operating Plan, the CTBG allocates resources for holding Workshops on Integrity Self-Assessment in OLACEFS SAIs which have not implemented the tool. For implementing the initiative trained moderators from other OLACEFS SAIs are required, which also promotes intra-regional cooperation. Please find attached a directory of OLACEFS moderators certified in IntoSAINT.

SAIs applying will be prioritized based on the following criteria:

  1. Having applied in 2016 but not chosen for IntoSAINT Workshops in that year due to budget constraints and the high number of candidate SAIs.
  2. As per what has been set out in Criteria for Prioritisation of SAIs with greater needs 2016, attached for reference purposes.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 22 February, 2017. Please send your application to the following e-mail addresses:, copying to and
