The content of the website of the Court of Audit is designed with the purpose to provide universal access to all of the published information – to anyone, at all times, and free of charge. Since the principle of universal access is limited by the health conditions of the users (i.e. visual, motion, hearing, cognitive and linguistic limitations) and technical limitations, we paid special attention to them and tried to adjust the website by considering the following recommendations:

  • font size may be adjusted,
  • key images are equipped with descriptions,
  • there are no moving pictures (GIFs),
  • names of the links are descriptive,
  • videos are mostly subtitled.

The website is optimised for multi-device browsing (computer, tablet, mobile phone) and compatible with different website browsers and software. Recommended is the use of the latest version of website browsers whenever it is possible to provide a better support to the users with disabilities and special needs.Despite the fact that we are aiming to increase the accessibility and usability of our website to the greatest extent possible, all the elements do not provide for the optimisation of the complete accessibility.

Therefore, some published contents do not meet all the demands related to accessibility as defined by the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications Act. Those deficiencies are:

  • we use PDF format for documents:
    • audit reports and other reports with short summaries that are available in text (doc and docx documents) and
    • various presentations (i.e. infographics, posters, manuals);
  • home page provides three elements with scroll box for automatic rotation with limited use of the manual override;
  • photographs and other images are used for visual supplementing of contents related to news and articles; photographs and images are subtitled, include data about source and alternative text, but do not include detailed descriptions or transcriptions of texts, since the adjustment would cause disproportionate burden;
  • schematic presentation of organisational structure of the Court of Audit;
  • documentation of concluded public calls was not adapted, since interference with public procurement documentation of completed public calls is not allowed; when preparing the next public call, we shall follow the standards of accessibility.

Managing Natura 2000 areas in Slovenia

In October 2017, the SAI Slovenia published the audit report on managing Natura 2000 areas in Slovenia.
Since more than 350 Natura 2000 areas are located in Slovenia, representing 37 percent of its territory and at the same time the largest share in the EU, Slovenia decided to preserve those areas in a unique
way – through unified development of management measures and their integration into different sectoral plans.

Poster for an audit on managing Natura 2000 areas

The audit revealed the following:

  • objectives and measures regarding the Natura 2000 areas were defined by the Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Nature Conservation and the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning and adopted by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia; appointed were also the bodies responsible for the implementation of measures;
  • in order to fully integrate the measures into different sectoral plans and thus facilitate their implementation, the Ministry and the Institute became appropriately involved in sectoral planning (the fields of protected areas, forest management, water management, agriculture, and spatial planning), namely through issuing guidelines and appropriate assessment of plans;
  • certain exceptions were identified that increase the risk of not implementing the measures – if the sectoral plans were not prepared or adopted (water management), if the appropriate assessment was not carried out (water management), or in the case of voluntary measures (agriculture);
  • the SAI Slovenia identified the greatest potential for improvement in the field of monitoring the implementation of measures – the monitoring system for collecting data from different sectors is being set up, allowing the assessment of adequacy and sufficiency of the protection measures and efficient management of Natura 2000 areas.
