The South African Association of Public Administration and Management (SAAPAM) is pleased to formally endorse the Accountability Institute of South Africa (AISA). SAAPAM is committed to accountable, transparent and professional public sector service delivery and good conduct and, as such, share AISA's mandate to promote non-financial accountability within the public sector. Noteworthy points about AISA are:

1. Established in 1999 as a not-for-profit membership-based organisation, AISA promotes the concept and practice of non-financial accountability across the public, private and not-for profit sectors.

2. AISA focuses on the development of methodological standards, informed by international standards, by working with institutions and organisations across sectors to develop appropriate non-financial accountability frameworks. This is to assist organsiations to measure their impact in terms of ethical conduct, social justice and environmental protection. Meaningful engagement with stakeholders about performance supported by rigorous operational data is central.

3. AISA endeavours to work with relevant South African accreditation and certification bodies, informed by international standards, to establish accreditation and certification frameworks for non-financial accountability.

AISA has established strategic alliances with sectoral representative bodies such as the South African NGO Coalition (SANGOCO) and the South African Chamber of Business. In line with these, SAPAM is in the process of forging a strategic partnership with AISA which will provide them with access to the activities of SAAPAM. AISA was encouraged to seek collaboration with SAAPAM's Ethics Chapter.

AISA wishes to forge a link with a public sector representative institution and has approached SAAPAM for its mandate and requested them to facilitate its engagement with the public sector. SAAPAM has agreed to endorse AISA and to work with it, where possible, to promote professionalism and accountability in the public service.

Members of SAAPAM wishing to enter into dialogue with AISA may contact Ms. Sarojini Persaud, Managing Director, via e-mail saro@aisa.org.za or 01-781-0777.
