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.

20th INTOSAI WGEA Assembly

Between 19 and 21 January 2021, the 20th INTOSAI Working Group on Environmental Auditing (WGEA) Assembly took place. This year’s meeting was organised by the SAI Finland and was titled Rethinking Circularity!

The first day of the Assembly meeting was thus dedicated to the presentation of the concept of circular economy and to the discussion on the possibility of applying this concept to the audit work, thereby deriving from the contributions of key international experts from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra.

Next on the agenda of the last two days were the following issues: plastic waste, international climate finance, sustainable transport, environment-related Sustainable Development Goals, capacity building and communication. The participants also had the chance to share relevant audit experiences and suggest ideas for further work and projects. The discussions were among others held by the experts of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), with the extra focus given to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the environment and the value of systemic thinking.

The Assembly meeting takes place every two years and is intended for all INTOSAI members and other interested WGEA stakeholders. This year, the meeting took the online form for the first time.
