Kick-Off Meeting of the EUROSAI Task Force on Municipality Audit

Delegation of the State Audit Institution participated in the kick-off meeting of the EUROSAI Task Force on Municipality Audit, held in Vilnius, Lithuania, from 10th until 12th April 2017.

During the kick-off meeting of the EUROSAI Task Force on Municipality Audit, members of the EUROSAI Task Force talked about plan to realize three strategic goals of the EUROSAI Task Force, activity plan for the period 2017-2019, as well as other significant strategic issues.

Bearing in mind importance of the Institution's competences regarding audit of local authorities' budgets, the State Audit institution became member of the EUROSAI Task Force on Municipality Audit in December 2016, for the purpose of developing audit methodology.

EUROSAI Task For on Municipality Audit was established in June 2016, when the EUROSAI Governing Board supported the initiative of the State Audit Office of Lithuania to gather Supreme Audit Institutions, interested in municipality audit issues. EUROSAI Task for on Municipality Audit currently has 26 members, namely 25 Supreme Audit Institutions and one observer.

Meeting was implemented with the support of "Enhancement of Municipal Audit for Accountability and Efficiency in Public Finance Management" Project, implemented by the State Audit institution and United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
