The mission of the Court of Audit is to inform the public and the National Assembly about important findings from the audits of operations of the users of public funds in a timely and objective manner and, based on its experience and knowledge of best practices, to provide advice to the users of public funds on how to improve their operations. The Court of Audit followed this mission also last year when it published 62 audit reports and 23 post-audit reports. Whereby it reviewed 112 auditees and thus expressed 85 opinions.
Besides the key audit results, the President of the Court of Audit, Tomaž Vesel, stressed some challenges faced by the Court of Audit that complement numerous initiatives for audits proposed by the citizens concerning the current situation. The presidents addressed the discussions of the audit and post-audit reports at the National Assembly and the need to amend Court of Audit Act. Proposal of the act that is at the moment being discussed at the National Assembly gives more opportunities for quicker responses, better access to needed data and information, work to be performed more economically and efficiently and, moreover, extends the list of entities that can be audited by the Court of Audit.
