The European Court of Auditors (ECA) upgraded online portal Public Audit in the European Union providing information on the mandate, status, organisation, work and output of the 29 supreme audit institutions of the EU and its Member States.
The information covered by Public Audit in the European Union underlines the essential nature of modern-day public audit bodies in the European Union and illustrates their contribution to the effective functioning of our democracies. By setting out the differences and similarities between EU supreme audit institutions, it shows the rich diversity that is such an important quality of the European Union and one of its key assets.
The information was collected in close cooperation with various audit institutions and shall be regularly updated. The ECA hopes that this portal attracts the interest of auditors, policymakers and legislators across the EU and beyond. With it, it also wishes to make a valuable contribution to ongoing research in public audit.
The online portal is available in 23 official EU languages: http://publications.europa.eu/webpub/eca/book-state-audit/en/
