Human Resources Practices and Management is one of AFROSAI-E’s strategic imperatives as well as one of the domains in the AFROSAI-E Institutional Capacity Building Framework. The importance of a professional Human Resources function is crucial for a SAI. Professional Human Resources promotes the development of policies, plans and procedures that enable the SAI to attract motivate and retain highly skilled professionals. Moreover, a professional Human Resource function develops strategic leadership skills, drive change and focus on results.
To promote the progress of professional Human Resources Management within the region, AFROSAI-E has developed a Human Resources Management Handbook. It was launched at the governing board in Arusha, Tanzania in April 2012.
