INTOSAI operates as an umbrella organization for the external government audit community. For more than 50 years, it has provided an institutionalized framework for SAIs to promote the development and transfer of knowledge, improve government auditing worldwide and enhance professional capacities of member SAIs in their respective countries. In keeping with INTOSAI’s motto, “Mutual Experience Benefits All,” the exchange of experience, findings and insight among members guarantee that government auditing continuously progresses with new developments.
The INTOSAI Governing Board recognizes seven Regional Organizations: African Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (AFROSAI); Arab Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (ARABOSAI); Asian Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (ASOSAI); Caribbean Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (CAROSAI); European Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (EUROSAI); Organization of Latin American Caribbean Supreme Audit Insitutions (OLACEFS); and the Pacific Associateion of Supreme Audit Institutions (PASAI). They promote INTOSAI’s goals and provide members with opportunities for professional and technical cooperation on a regional basis. The INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI) and INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation also support the enhancement of audit capacities of member SAIs.
