Joint SAI PMF Basic Training Course a Regional Success
The Organization of Latin American and Caribbean Supreme Audit Institutions’ (OLACEFS) Commission of Performance Evaluation and Performance Indicators (CEDEIR) organized a Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) Performance Measurement Framework (PMF) Basic Training Course held in Lima, Peru, September 18-21, 2018.
The SAI PMF Basic Training course, jointly coordinated with the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) Development Initiative (IDI), made it possible for 25 participants representing the SAIs of Belize, Bolivia, Cuba, Chile, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Peru, to be trained on the 2016 SAI PMF version endorsed at the XXII INTOSAI Congress in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Using a theoretical-practical approach, the course included instruction on SAI PMF structure and methodology. The instructors—William Burnett (United Kingdom), Enrique Mejía (Perú), Brighton Nyanga (Zambia), Horacio Saboia Vieira (Brazil)—also taught participants how to use the tool to conduct assessments.
During the event, the Comptroller General of Peru, Mr. Nelson Shack Yalta, addressed participants. He shared CEDEIR achievements, underscored the importance of SAI PMF, and praised the joint work carried out by IDI since 2012 that has benefited the region. He also reaffirmed SAI Peru’s commitment to continue strengthening SAI capacities in the region.
