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

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.
