The UAE Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) is an independent authority reporting to the Federal National Council. It is dedicated to improving accountability and standards of governance across the UAE federal government. The SAI helps ensure the Federal Government properly collects monies, and that public funds are being spent wisely. The SAI also reviews that federal organizations are delivering on their stated objectives. Its remit includes all UAE Federal Government Ministries and organizations, and corporations in which the federal government has a minimum 25% shareholding. The SAI has a total of 70 organizations to audit. Of these, 12 are corporations owned or partially owned by the Federal Government. Today, the SAI is striving to become one of the world’s top audit institutions. It is working towards this goal by introducing best practice auditing, recruiting the best people, and offering the best professional career path to UAE National graduates. The SAI exercises a control role for the UAE Federal Government by working with organizations to improve governance, performance and accountability in the government sector.
