What is this course about?
The European Court of Auditors (ECA) carries out three types of audit in the area of EU Cohesion Policy: financial, compliance and performance audit. Each of them has different objectives and addresses different audit questions.
The legal framework 2014-2020 has the ambition to be a more results oriented spending framework, where performance and results are the key words.
This highly practical two-day course presents all aspects of each stage of the performance audit process. It includes the unique feature of providing an insight into how the European Court of Auditors plans, prepares and implements their audit assignments, as it covers real audit case studies and experiences of the Court’s teams.
How will it help you?
After the presentation of each stage of performance audit, you will work on real life case studies in small working groups, with direct involvement and guidance of experts from the European Court of Auditors.
Who will benefit most?
Audit, Managing and Certifying Authorities, Intermediate Bodies, beneficiaries of EU Funds, independent auditors dealing with or interested in EU funded project and programmes and consulting companies specialised in auditing EU co-funded programmes and projects.
What will you learn?
You will improve your practical knowledge about each stage of performance audit performed by the European Court of Auditors.
