SAI Seychelles attends MOVE
SAI Seychelles is a member of the Afrosai-E of which its Governing Board is made up of the Auditor Generals from 26 English-speaking African countries. The Afrosai-E hosted this year’s annual technical conference from the 7th to 9th November in Pretoria, South Africa with the theme MOVE.
MOVE 2023 was an innovative event that inspired action. The Conference was a platform for SAIs and other stakeholders to gather and explore the possibilities of movement-be it in technology, auditing techniques, institutional structures or personal growth. SAI Seychelles was represented by two audit managers at the technical conference.
Move 2023 started with a keynote address by Mr Joseph Asunka, the CEO of Afrobarometer, in which the main focus was on citizen perspective on the state of the continent.
Afrobarometer is a pan-African survey research organization, which has reliable insights into African citizens’ experiences, evaluations and aspirations regarding democracy, governance and quality of life. This was followed by plenary discussions by the AFROSAI-E on the Institutional Capacity Building Framework (ICBF) a tool that enables SAIs to understand their capacity-building needs and priorities.
On day two, transformation was in the spotlight, focusing first on the roadmap towards digital transformation and later during the day the SAI professionalisation journey was discussed. On day three there was a presentation on the outcomes of the annual CBC meeting by SAI south Africa. This was followed by a session on the sustainable development goals and how SAIs can integrate the SDGs in audits. The conference’s final session saw the launch of two new products on Extractive Industries (EI) audit namely an audit guideline and a new initiative on EI sector groups which enable SAIs to monitor what is happening in that sector.
