Strong financial management of EU Funds is crucial to ensure that all European funding resources are spent properly and efficiently. Building assurance of proper use of public money is an area of shared management between the European Commission and the Member States. In the Member States, the bodies responsible for the implementation of structural measures need to ensure that the management and control systems work efficiently and the European resources are spent correctly.

Due to increased European audit requirements, national authorities have to meet the challenges of stronger financial controls and to carry out the respective audits. The irregularities discovered by the European Commission or the European Court of Auditors can have serious consequences and lead to repayment and therefore must be avoided.
