What is this course about?

This course is about the ambition of the EU to be more results-oriented in the current programming period 2021-2027 using a framework where performance and results are the keywords.

To do so, this highly practical course informs about the main funding sources in the 2021-2027 period (ESIFs and RRF in particular), their rules, differences, challenges and functioning, and presents as well all key aspects of each stage of the performance audit process.

It includes the unique feature of providing an insight into how the European Court of Auditors plan, prepare and implement their audit assignments, covering real-life audit case studies and sharing experiences of the Court’s teams.

It explains how performance is assessed during the 2021-2027 period, has some unique features and insights with regard to the analysis of costs and benefits, and explains in detail the audit methodologies and some of the tools used, such as benchmarking. The casework also demonstrates the strength of key performance indicators, and how to use them.

The innovative aspect of this course is that, when applying for this course, you will be given the opportunity to choose your preferred case study to work on from a broad range of different audits proposed by the Court’s team and you will be able to discuss your specific cases of measuring results within your organisation with the ECA experts.

What will you be able to do with what you learn?

You will be able to apply the knowledge for developing a results-based analysis system for both ESIF and RRF funds spent within your organisation during the 2021-2027 programming period by using the theory and practical knowledge from this course.
