PASAI, Pacific Association of Supreme Audit Institutions

The Swedish National Audit Office runs a development project in partnership with PASAI, a regional organisation within INTOSAI – the global organisation for supreme audit institutions. PASAI consists of supreme audit institutions in the Pacific. The purpose of the cooperation is to strengthen the capacity of the individual supreme audit institution, as well as PASAI as an organisation, in the areas of Human Resources and management processes.

The members of the regional organisation of PASAI comes from 27 national and regional supreme audit institutions. The organisation was founded in 2009 and has a main task of supporting transparent, responsible and effective use of public resources in the Pacific. This enables the PASAI members to improve public audit quality and to implement international auditing standards.

The development cooperation project with PASAI is well aligned with Swedish priorities for development cooperation on a national level and the governmental regional strategy for the Asian and Pacific regions.

Since 2017, the Swedish National Audit Office has had a continuous, supportive dialogue with PASAI in organisational development.

The partnership is focused on HR and management processes – areas where PASAI has struggled to receive support through partners. The approach is practical:

  • support development of HR strategies and operational plans.
  • revision of the regional HR handbook.
  • training for a group that can hold a HR Champion position in the region.
  • HR knowledge and support to the advisor at the PASAI secretariat.

The countries eligible for support through the project ae: Fiji, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia (nationally and the states of Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap), Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

Other countries, such as Australia and New Zealand, are passive members or contributors.

The agreement runs until the end of 2022 but can be extended for two more years.
