CAROSAI 30th Anniversary Conference in Jamaica, 15-17 August, 2018


The Secretary General of CAROSAI and Auditor General of Jamaica, Pamela Monroe Ellis, hosted the 30th anniversary conference in Kingston, Jamaica, from 15 to 17 August 2018 on the theme “Building the future on the foundation of the past”.
The topic for the first day was “Towards more Accountability” which had presentations and the discussions moderated by the IDI. These addressed the importance of, the need for and the value of independence of SAI. The government representatives, who participated as speakers, were unanimous in their view that independent SAIs play a decisive role in ensuring enhanced accountability and transparency.
They also agreed unanimously that, in the 21st century, SAIs should be more vigorous in raising awareness of their value and benefits for governments and citizens, in the spirit of the motto “break the silence”. This would help them to generate a better and wider acceptance and understanding of government audit.
The topic for the second day was “Acting in the Public’s Interest: A SAI’s Response” which covered the following five topics: “SAIs Fighting Corruption”, “SDG Programme and Cross Cutting Audits – Sharing of Experiences”, “Strengthening the Foundation for Future Relevance”, “Generation Next – Managing Talent in the Public Sector” and “Institutional Strengthening for the SAI of the Future”. All topics were considered from the specific viewpoint of CAROSAI.
