Event Description

This highly-practical three-day course will give you a complete overview and detailed understanding of all practical aspects of control (external and internal) and audit of EU funds in the programming period 2014-2020 and foreseen changes in the 2021-2027 perspective. It covers:
  • Relevant legislation;
  • Methods of increasing the efficiency of control and audits;
  • Combating fraud and preventing irregularities;
  • Practical know-how gained through workshops on audit of public procurement, audit of State aid and Performance audit.
 
The unique feature of this course is that it covers the experience of internal and external audit experts from the European Commission, the European Court of Auditors (ECA), the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) and Member States.
 
How will it help you?
We have made this course very practical and interactive. All presentations are given by audit experts and include concrete examples and real-life case studies. The majority of them are followed by practical workshops in small working groups with the direct involvement of ECA’s experts. You will learn about errors and irregularities, and what lessons can be learnt from these.
 
Who will benefit most?
  • Beneficiaries eligible under the Structural Funds, Cohesion Fund and IPA II Managing Authorities, Certifying Authorities, Audit Authorities and Intermediate Bodies;
  • Independent auditors and junior auditors dealing with or interested in EU-funded projects and programmes;
  • Consulting companies specialised in the auditing of EU Funds or programmes and projects.
 
What will you be able to do with what you learn?
You will improve your knowledge about errors, irregularities and fraud in ESIF co-financed projects with a special focus on public procurement and State aid. You will also learn how financial, compliance and performance audits should be carried out and how these audits will function in the programming period 2021-2027.
