About the Project

The UK Overseas Territories Project, now in its second phase, is an ongoing programme of support for public financial management and governance targeted towards UK Overseas Territories. Over the past four years, the UK branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA UK), in consortium with the UK National Audit Office (NAO) and the UK Government Internal Audit Agency (GIAA), and funded by the HMG-wide Conflict, Security and Stability Fund (CSSF), has worked with partners in the UK and Overseas Territories (OTs) to provide technical assistance, training

and mentoring to support and encourage effective public financial management and promote good governance.

The programme of activities will be supported by this online portal, enabling local and international stakeholders to discuss key issues with counterparts, upload documents and allowing the Project Team to easily share updates, outputs and other relevant material.

Phase II

Based on the findings and lessons learned over the last four years, Phase II of the project seeks to provide a broader remit of governance support and is aimed at improving the capacity of parliamentarians, parliamentary and electoral officials and public auditors in the UK Overseas Territories to conduct their legislative, oversight and electoral responsibilities.

The project will support a more holistic and integrated approach to promote good governance in the UKOTs by working in four spheres (elections, assemblies, and internal and external audit offices) across the electoral cycle (pre-election, election and post-election).
