ICAI follow-up

We follow up on the steps the government has taken in response to our recommendations for all ICAI reviews. This process is a key link in the accountability chain, providing Parliament and the public with an account of how well government departments have responded to ICAI reviews.

We published the follow-up for our trade development work in Southern Africa review in year.
