The first audit is 'Effective transparent use of public funds to overcome the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic - economic measures for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.” It will be implemented in the Ministries of Economy and Finance.

The second audit is “Effective and transparent use of public funds to overcome the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic - measures for social support and employment” and will be at the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy and the Employment and Social Assistance Agencies.

The third audit is “Effective and transparent use of public funds to overcome the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic - measures to support farmers” and will be at the Ministry of Agriculture and Agriculture Fund.

All three audits will cover the period from 01.02.2020 to 31.03.2021.

To implement the three audits, the Court of Auditors amended its 2020 audit programme by suspending other audit tasks.

"This will be able to focus its efforts on the unprecedented challenges caused by the pandemic and the measures taken by the government to reduce the burden of the crisis for Bulgarian citizens and businesses who commit significant financial resources.

In recent months, the activity of INTOSAI, the international professional organization of the Supreme Audit Institutions, has been intensified in connection with initiatives aimed at their role in overcoming the pandemic.

The European Court of Auditors (ECA) also revised its work programme for 2020 and added two reviews with particular focus on the COVID-19 crisis.

The ECA issued an opinion in the spring that a balance between greater flexibility and accountability obligation for the use of EU Structural Funds is needed to mitigate the effects of COVID-19", the Court of Auditors said.

EXPECT DETAILS IN THE BLITZ!
