STATE AUDIT OFFICE RECEIVES EP BUDGET CONTROL CTTEE DELEGATION

 

State Audit Office (ÁSZ) officials on Tuesday received a delegation of the European Parliament’s Budgetary Control Committee, and briefed them on its functions and answered questions about its inspections, ÁSZ said in a statement. ÁSZ head László Windisch and other audit officials met the delegation headed by Monika Hohlmeier, the statement said. On the agenda were audits related to EU funds already carried out and those planned, as well as audits of EU subsidies provided within the framework of the country’s Rural Development Programme, it added. Windisch briefed the delegation about reforms at ÁSZ implemented since his appointment last July. The aim, he added, is to continue building a professional financial and economic audit and advisory body which enhances and deepens its controls with mechanisms to ensure that institutions and organisations spend the public funds entrusted to them effectively and efficiently, the statement said.
