As one of the continuations of the LTAPII, the “ASEANSAI Workshop on Performance Audit” was held virtually from 25 to 28 October 2021. The workshop aimed to capacitate ASEANSAI Auditors in conducting ISSAI-based performance audits using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to create pathways for performance Auditors in the quest for improved competence, confidence, and credibility.

SAI Philippines as the Chair of the ASEANSAI Training Committee hosted and led the Workshop with the participation of around 50 representatives from 8 ASEANSAI member countries and representatives from the Swedish National Audit Office (SNAO) as the Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).

The Workshop covered the explanations on the overview of the SDGs, the role of SAIs in ensuring the achievement of SDGs, incorporating SDGs in strategic planning, performance audit cycle, and SDGs entry points, and planning an audit on the implementation of the SDGs.

After the workshop, ASEANSAI is expected to have around 20 capacitated auditors on performance audit to sustain the implementation of ISSAI-based performance audit in ASEANSAI.
