Are you about to face the annual audit visit?

Do you dread the experience?

Do you feel that you never get any benefit from the role of auditors?

Are you under pressure to spend public funds effectively?

You are not alone!

This new EIPA course will help you understand the evolving role of auditors in the current challenging environment and how they can help you deliver better infrastructure and better services for citizens.

In this course we are working with auditors from the Netherlands Court of Audit (Algemene Rekenkamer) to share with you current best practice approaches from across Europe.

It will help you to understand what auditors do and why and how they do it and thus help you to work with auditors in a way which brings you benefits beyond the statutory discharge of accounts.
How will it help you?

By the end of the workshop you will:

Better understand the role of auditors in the public sector;
Better understand how auditors undertake financial and performance audits, including compliance and value for money aspects, systems audits and transactions audits at all stages of the financial and performance management audit cycle and the key idea of risk-based auditing;
Help you to prepare for audit visits to maximise their value to your organisation.

Course methodology

To help you to do so we will give you:

Input with presentations on key issues in auditing;
Examples/case studies to show you what happens in audit practice across the EU at national and sub-national level;
Exercises to reinforce your understanding of the practical application of auditing;
Adequate time to discuss with our experts and other participants issues arising in your situation.

Who will benefit most?

This workshop is for officials from European institutions/agencies, ministries, national executive agencies, regional governments, municipalities and other public sector bodies such as:

Finance staff responsible for discharge of accounts;
Service managers responsible for planning and managing services;
Internal auditors responsible for auditing financial systems and transactions and operational procedures;
External auditors who can help public sector bodies improve how they control finances and plan and manage services more effectively.

It could also benefit professional advisers to public bodies, those working in the NGO sector and academics in the field of auditing.

If you are a finance professional, service manager or auditor in the public sector, come and share experiences with your peers and learn from our experts to deal with the difficult challenges you are facing.
