The independence of SAI heads and members (of collegial institutions), including security of tenure and legal immunity in the normal discharge of their duties

The applicable legislation specifies the conditions for appointments, reappointments, employment, removal and retirement of the head of SAI and members of collegial institutions, who are:

  • appointed, reappointed, or removed by a process that ensures their independence from the Executive (see GUID 9030: Good Practices Related to SAI Independence);
  • given appointments with sufficiently long and fixed terms, to allow them to carry out their mandates without fear of retaliation; and
  • immune to any prosecution for any act, past or present, that results from the normal discharge of their duties as the case may be.
