Report a Threat to SAI Independence

Independence is the cornerstone of every country's supreme audit institution. Unfortunately, this independence can easily come under threat from changes to a country's constitution, Audit Act, or other legislation. Efforts to block a SAI's access to documents or to delay the appointment of new SAI leadership can also detract from the independence a SAI needs to effectivly serve its citizens.

If you are aware of a current threat to the independence of a SAI, we would like to hear from you! Please report the threat to the Independent SAIs team at the INTOSAI Development Initiative via e-mail at [email protected]. If you would like your name and/or report to be kept confidential, please indicate this in your e-mail.

We aim to review all reports and respond within 30 days. Reporting a threat is the first stage of the SAI Independence Rapid Advocacy Mechanism (SIRAM). To learn more about the SIRAM, and how IDI can potentially organize a response to your reported threat, please click here.
