In February 2020, the Swedish National Audit Office agreed with the supreme audit institution in Zimbabwe – the Office of the Auditor General (OAG) – to extend the partnership established 2017 to the end of 2021.The focus of Sweden’s development cooperation with Zimbabwe includes human rights, democracy, the rule of law and gender equality. One of the interim objectives in this area is to improve conditions for democratic public governance, reduced corruption, responsibility and accountability in public institutions.
The Swedish National Audit Office’s partnership cooperation is in line with these ambitions. The partnership focuses on three main areas. One main area is to support development of OAG’s leadership and managers for better direction and control of the organisation. Another area is to improve processes and implementation of performance audits to enable OAG to produce more, faster and better reports. The partnership also covers communication, with focus on internal communication.
In November 2020, the Swedish National Audit Office also contributed with USD 200,000 to the program implemented by United Nations Development Programme in cooperation with the Parliament in Zimbabwe. This enabled OAG to be included as beneficiary in the programme, receiving support to implementation of some audits as well as to strengthen OAG systems and capacity.
