The GIZ Good Financial Governance (GFG) in Africa programme promotes transparency and accountability in public financial management. It is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). AFROSAI-E, the English language subgroup of the African Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (AFROSAI), is a member-based institution with 26 Auditors-General from English-speaking African countries. The Auditor General of South Africa hosts the Secretariat. The AFROSAI-E Secretariat is one of the implementing partners of the GIZ GFG in Africa Programme.

The Assignment:

Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) perform audits with the objective to ensure transparency and accountability in government’s use of public finances. Audits often touch on issues closely related to the delivery of essential public services. Yet, the impact of these audits often remains unknown to citizens.

The primary objective of this assignment is to showcase audit impact by means of an individual case study through the eyes of the auditor, auditee, citizens and possibly other accountability actors, such as parliament and civil society. The case study shall tell a compelling story which will be published as an AFROSAI-E communication product (video) supported by GIZ. Hence, the video shall capture how individual citizens were affected by the audit subject and improvements made following the audit recommendations of the SAIs. Two performance audits from the SAIs of The Gambia and Rwanda were selected for this assignment.

The target group for the videos is twofold: at the country level, the target group includes citizens, civil society and other stakeholders of the SAI. At regional and international levels, the target group includes development partners and donors in the field of governance and public finance.

The project shall result in lessons learnt that can inform future storytelling projects for other audits/interventions supported by AFROSAI-E (e.g., in financial, compliance and information systems audits).

GIZ invites eligible and professional service firms with legal local presence in Africa to participate in this tender. Tender documents are available for downloading below.
