Description

In the current programming period 2007-2013, the effective control systems and audit of the EU Funds began one of the key issues in the implementation of the EU Cohesion Policy. National and regional administrations have more responsibilities to build an effective control system and to assure a proper spending of public money then in previous financial perspectives. The seminar will focus not only on the EU Structural and Cohesion Funds, but also on the Pre-accession Instrument - IPA. Apart from the presentation of the relevant legislation, methods of increasing efficiency of control and audits, this seminar will provide know-how on combating fraud and preventing irregularities, public procurement and State Aid. It will also give an overview of foreseen changes in the next programming period 2014- 2020 related to the organisation of internal and external audit. The unique feature of this seminar is that it covers the experience of internal and external audit experts coming from public sector, EU Commission, as well as the European Court of Auditors and the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF).

Learning methodology

The method will be a combination of traditional training methods (lectures and presentations, including concrete examples and case studies) with a very interactive approach. Participants will work in small working groups on concrete practical exercises-case studies with direct involvement of experts (audit of public procurement and State Aid). After each practical part there will be discussions in question and answer sessions.

Objectives

The goal of this three-day practical seminar is to give to participants an overview of the system and a detailed understanding of practical aspects of control (external and internal) and audit of the EU Funds in the programming period 2007-2013, as well as foreseen changes in the next programming period 2014-2020.
