The Swedish National Audit Office (NAO) collaborates with ASEANSAI, a regional organisation with members from ten national Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) in Southeast Asia.
The Association of South-Est Asian Nations Supreme Audit Institutions (ASEANSAI) was founded in 2011 and consists of the SAI of Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The cooperation within ASEANSAI aims to promote good governance in the region through the exchange of knowledge and experiences among the members.
The Swedish NAO and ASEANSAI have, after the first cooperation agreement 2017-2019, entered into a new cooperation period that runs until the end of 2022. The cooperation aims to strengthen the regional capacity to conduct audits in accordance with international standards.
The cooperation with ASEANSAI is based on the needs of the members and the ASEANSAI Strategic Plan. The Swedish NAO provides professional expertise and supports the work of building a pool of regional experts and developing training materials that can be used by ASEANSAI members. By strengthening regional expertise in performance audit, financial audit and compliance audit, the aim is to contribute to increased transparency and effectiveness in the public administration in the region.
The preconditions for the members to conduct public sector auditing within their mandate vary. There are variations regarding the position of the SAIs in their respective countries as well as the institutional conditions and organisational capacity. By supporting collegial exchanges, stronger members can function as support for colleagues from member organisations with greater needs.
