Audit of Jamaica’s Preparedness for Implementation of Sustainable Development Goals
The Auditor General’s Department is one of 40 English- speaking Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) involved in an INTOSAI-IDI cooperative performance audit of preparedness of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Jamaica’s preparedness for implementation of the SDGs is essential to the achievement of the targets that will create a stable economy and enhance the quality of life for all Jamaicans, such that “No one is left behind”.
The audit will assess the extent to which the actions implemented by the Government of Jamaica since the endorsement of the 2030 Agenda at the national level is adequate to support preparedness for the achievement of the SDGs. Consistent with the AuGD’s Thematic Framework, the audit will focus on two key areas:
- Adaptation of the SDGs into Jamaica’s Context
- Monitoring and Reporting Mechanisms
Accordingly, the Audit will seek to answer questions such as:
- Are there effective mechanisms to ensure preparedness for the implementation of the SDGs?
- Has the Government established mechanisms to monitor the progress towards the implementation of the SDGs in Jamaica?
- Are MDAs strategic and operational plans aligned to the SDGs?
- Is the Government identifying and allocating resources for the implementation of the SDGs?
- Are there established mechanisms to raise stakeholders’ awareness and ownership of the SDGs and Vision 2030?
- Has the government identified all key performance indicators and baselines and set milestones for the implementation?
- Are there effective mechanisms for reporting on
the implementation of the SDGs?
