The ASEAN Supreme Audit Institutions (ASEANSAI) was established on November 16,2011 in Bali, Indonesia. All Heads of ten Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) of ASEAN member states signed an agreement on the establishment of the ASEANSAI. The Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia (BPK) has taken a lead to establish the ASEANSAI and hosted the SAIs Summit of the ASEAN member states at that important event. All SAIs of the ASEAN member states have supported and given strong commitment to build SAIs capacity together through the ASEANSAI.

The ASEANSAI is a professional organization, which is independent, autonomous, and non political. The ASEANSAI becomes a forum to enhance capacity and collaboration in the field of public sector auditing in ASEAN region. In addition, the ASEANSAI would like to contribute positively and constructively to the ASEAN Community, in the future. This will be done by exchanging knowledge and experiences in conducting audits in each member SAI. In achieving the above expectation, the ASEANSAI will be an entity associated with the ASEAN. The ASEANSAI is not an organ of the ASEAN.This position of the ASEANSAI toASEAN is like the position of ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly.

In the First Assembly meeting of the ASEANSAI, the Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia (BPK RI) is honored to lead the Chairmanship of the ASEANSAI for the period of 2012-2013. The Chairman of BPK RI becomes the Chairman of the ASEANSAI while the Secretary General of BPK RI becomes the Head of the ASEANSAI Secretariat. The SAI of Brunei Darussalam becomes the Vice Chairman of the ASEANSAI.

To carry out administrative support for the Executive Committee, the Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia as the Chairman of the ASEANSAI will also run its function as the ASEANSAI Secretariat. In the Executive Committee meeting in February 2012, it was also agreed that the Secretariat would undertake tasks to support the activities of the ASEANSAI. This report is written to give the information on the progress of the ASEANSAI work plan, which has been implemented and to be implemented in the future. This report will also explain activities that have been conducted and to be conducted by the ASEANSAI Secretariat.
