In the Audit Compendium is also he Supreme Audit Office of the Slovak Republic (SAO SR). SAO SR carried out an audit in which it investigated how the entities of territorial self-government managed its property participation in commercial companies. The audit examined the long-term financial assets of the municipalities worth EUR 227.03 mil. The audited period was 2015, respectively, the period from 2013 to 2015 for selected, audited areas (activities of the company bodies and control activities).
The Compendium from december 2019 provides some background information on public health, its legal bases, main objectives and related responsibilities at Member State and EU levels. The Compendium also illustrates the main challenges the EU and its Member States are facing in this field. Public health is a complex area to audit. Nevertheless, the large number of audits carried out in recent years reflects the great significance of this domain for EU citizens.
