Audit

Public institutions in Europe undergo currently radical changes and very dynamic processes. Internal and external auditors from the public sector face a large number of new challenges. 

They need to ensure that their audit methods are up-to-date, accurate and capable to uncover bad governance so that they can recommend innovative and adequate solutions.

Old threats in a new environment
Due to the expanding of responsibilities and new fields of activities, public sector auditors need to extend their know-how on a daily basis. At the same time, fraud and corruption remain the biggest threat to a proper functioning of public institutions. The European Academy for Taxes, Economics & Law supports internal and external auditors by providing the high-quality practical seminars and trainings in key issues such as:

  • Fighting fraud and corruption in the public sector
  • Risk analysis and management methods
  • Financial control
  • Public procurement control
  • IT audit
  • Performance audit
  • EU Funds control and audit
  • Effective internal audit system in the public administration

Extend your expertise by participating in the various events held by the European Academy for Taxes, Economics & Law in this area.

Fraud and corruption in the public sector heavily harm the economy, lower investment levels and reduce public finances. Anti-fraud and anti-corruption strategies are often not effective enough and damages done to public institutions and their budgets by fraud and corruption can be enormous ranging from financial loss to reduction of organisational performance, reputation, credibility and public confidence.

The European Union (EU) and its Member States are the world’s biggest donors, providing more than half of all development and humanitarian aid worldwide. However, in order to cooperate successfully with the EU and to benefit from the external cooperation funds, beneficiaries have to follow a multitude of administrative regulations and fulfil all external audit requirements.

Whether internal or external, strategic, financial, operational or reputational risks – these can significantly hinder the work of your authority. In the current economic and financial context the lack of an adequate approach to risk management is an enormous and real threat to the work of any public administration, since nowadays work efficiency and effectiveness in the public sector are more important than ever before. For that reason, it is of extreme importance that public authorities do not rely solely on their intuition in dealing with risks, but use professional formalised risk management as an integral and ongoing part of their general management process.
