Thursday, December 15, 2005 - Two Caribbean Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions CAROSAI auditors from the Saint Lucia and Jamaica Government Audit Offices attended a workshop on E-Learning which was held in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia from November 28th to December 9th , 2005. The INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI) delivered the workshop. Twenty-four (24) participants from the seven worldwide regional working groups of INTOSAI attended the workshop.

E-learning is the delivery of learning and training using electronic media and can be either web based or computer based. It encompasses distance learning where learning materials can be accessed from the Internet or CD.

The workshop was conceived for IDI training specialists and others with an interest in training from developing Audit Offices of English speaking regions of INTOSAI. The idea was to build on existing capacities in the area of e-learning and to create a community of e-designers for the regions and the Audit Offices. The e-learning workshop was also a way of testing the potential of e-learning for the future.

Miss Averil James from Saint Lucia and Miss Deidre Cousins from Jamaica who are IDI training specialists represented CAROSAI in Malaysia.

CAROSAI is a regional grouping of Caribbean Government Audit Institutions established in August 1988 in Port of Spain Trinidad and Tobago by nine founding members, one of which was Saint Lucia. Since then, the CAROSAI Secretariat has been housed in the Office of the Auditor General of Trinidad and Tobago.

After approximately seventeen years of service, the Supreme Audit Institution SAI of Trinidad and Tobago expressed the view that another SAI should take over the management of the Secretariat.

The Caribbean Organisation Supreme Audit Institutions CAROSI Act passed in the Saint Lucia House of Assembly on November 2nd, 2005 has given CAROSAI the authority to operate as a legal entity in Saint Lucia.
