TALLINN, 18 October 2014 – On 16-17 October, Auditor General Alar Karis, Adviser to the Auditor General Urmet Lee and Head of the International Relations Service Tuuli Rasso attended the annual meeting of the Contact Committee of the Heads of Supreme Audit Institutions of the European Union and the European Court of Audit held in Luxembourg.

The main item on the agenda was improving cooperation between SAIs.  The Contact Committee decided to find ways for closer cooperation and, as the first step, introduce the so-called early warning system to monitor the developments in the EU, notify the SAIs of Member States thereof, and propose appropriate action.

Further, the Heads of SAIs agreed that extended cooperation should include audit activities as this could contribute to the improvement of financial management of EU policy areas and measures implemented on EU and national level. Proposals for improving audit cooperation will be developed (in particular, in the fields of the Europe 2020 strategy and the Banking Union).
