IDI: Study on Supreme Audit Institution Independence and Impact on Extractive Sector Governance in South America and Francophone Africa
Issued by our partner organisation the INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI)
IDI is commissioning a study on the relationship between the independence of SAIs and their role in extractive sector governance. The study will focus on countries with a large extractive (oil, gas or mining sector) in South America and Francophone Africa, drawing comparisons within and between regions and between SAIs with different institutional arrangements (Legislative and Judicial models). The study will be included in a series of IDI knowledge products on SAI independence and will be used for awareness and advocacy purposes.
About IDI: The INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI) is a not-for profit, autonomous implementing body. IDI is mandated to support Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) in developing countries to sustainably enhance their performance and capacity. One area of support is advocacy and support to SAIs in their efforts to enhance their institutional independence.

We believe that a country’s natural resources belong to its citizens. Our mission is to promote understanding of natural resource management, strengthen public and corporate governance and accountability, and provide the data to inform policymaking and multi-stakeholder dialogue in the extractive sector. By becoming a member of the Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), countries commit to disclose information along the extractive industry value chain – from how extraction rights are awarded, to how revenues make their way through government and how they benefit the public. Through participation in the EITI, more than 50 countries have agreed to a common set of rules governing what has to be disclosed and when – the EITI Standard. In each country that has joined the EITI, a multi-stakeholder group, composed of government, companies and civil society, supports implementation of the EITI Standard.
