Building the capacity of Pacific supreme audit institutions (SAIs) is fundamental to improving regional governance. Public auditing in the Pacific region overall has advanced substantially in the past decade. Numerous audit backlogs have been cleared, and both audit quality and the performance of almost all Pacific SAIs have improved. These gains have been made in the face of intimidating challenges. Sustaining such gains is difficult in smaller country settings because auditing in tight-knit social and cultural environments involves significant political, professional, and personal pressures. In addition, Pacific SAIs are at different stages of development and, for some, much more remains to be done to reach uniformly high standards.
