What it is
SAI20, or Supreme Audit Institution 20, is the engagement group of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) from the countries that make up the G20. SAI20 is chaired by the SAI of the country holding the G20 presidency, which is currently Brazil, represented by the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU).
The group plays an important role in overseeing the implementation of G20 commitments while offering support for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations (UN).
SAIs can track progress and evaluate results as well as provide feedback on the effectiveness of G20 policies. Monitoring helps ensuring that commitments are turned into actions.
The SAI20 engagement group of the G20 was established in 2022 during Indonesia's G20 presidency and supports SAI members to prepare for the future in the face of rapidly changing audit environments.
SAI20 is composed of the 19 supreme audit institutions (SAIs) from the countries that make up the G20, in addition to the European Union and the African Union. They are: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Türkiye, the United Kingdom and the United States.
