The assessed independent variables related to internal control, procurement, governance structures, management, policy environment, ICT, accounting procedures and budgeting, reporting and auditing systems have generally fallen into two parts: i) a moderate risk assessment in the relevant area with some capacity enhancement required to improve capability and ii) low to moderately low risk assessment in the relevant area with little to no capacity enhancement required to improve capability. Finally, several recommendations to improve TIP’s performance towards its sustainability are proposed.
