With the new Programming Period 2014-2020 a number of changes have been introduced that are aimed to simplify procedures and to increase efficiency and effectiveness. According to the IISAI Guidelines performance audit is an independent examination of the efficiency and effectiveness of government undertakings, programmes or organisations, with due regard to economy, aiming to achieve improvements. This requires a stronger focus for managing and audit authorities to adapt their strategies accordingly.
The EU budget is complex and audits are implemented to check that accounting processes work properly and the resulting accounting data are complete, correctly recorded and properly presented.
Performance audit plays a significant role in evaluating performance and management, and gives recommendations on how to improve the EU budget’s potential by reducing errors, paying correct claims more quickly, investing in projects and measuring the returns on those investments to ensure they deliver and add value.
