ELLA Spotlight on Knowledge: Spotlight on Publications: Social Control Mechanisms in Supreme Audit Institutions

Abstract

Increasingly, Latin American (LA) Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs), the agencies in charge of overseeing the use of public resources, are creating mechanisms to involve citizens in the oversight process in order to improve the quality of audits, increase citizens’ trust in public institutions, and ensure their right to participate in public decisions. This selection of publications documents some of the key social control mechanisms implemented by LA SAIs.
