This working paper examines the evidence from an initiative to assess parliamentary performance in Africa regarding Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) and the budget cycle process. As part of the Africa-Canada Parliamentary Strengthening Program (ACPSP,) the Centre has launched a number of self-administered Parliamentary Audits, with the goal of documenting baseline assessments of effectiveness in selected Parliaments. These “audits” are based on the views of focus groups in response to a series of detailed questions, with returns so far received from Benin, Ghana, Kenya, Niger, Senegal and Tanzania.
