NIK has finished the audit concerning Poland’s preparedness to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda Sustainable Development Goals



I am pleased to inform that the Supreme Audit Office of Poland (NIK) has finished the audit concerning Poland’s preparedness to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Therefore, I would like to present a set of information regarding this important initiative, including the benefits for Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) resulting from the involvement in the subject matter:

Implementation of the UN Resolution Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a task that not only requires cooperation of the entire administration sector, but also involvement of Supreme Audit Institutions. The implementation of the 2030 Agenda goals is a task of the government, whereas SAIs are to monitor, within their mandates and priorities, the performance of duties by public authorities at the national level. Preparations for the audit commenced in July 2017 in the UN Headquarters in New York, where SAIs discussed the audit planning and performance principles, based on the three objectives:

1) To what extent has the government adapted the 2030 agenda into its national context?

2) Has the government identified and secured the resources and capacities (means of implementation) needed to implement the 2030 Agenda?

3) Has the government established a mechanism to monitor, follow-up, review and report on progress towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda?

It is currently the largest audit of SAIs cooperating within INTOSAI, conducted on the basis of ISSAIs as well as jointly prepared performance audit model and methodology. The audit is titled Performance Audit of Preparedness for Implementation of Sustainable Development Goals.
