Council of Europe Peer Review on Supervision and Internal Audit of Local Governments

The Centre of Expertise, in cooperation with the European Committee on Democracy and Governance, is organising a peer review on Supervision and audit of local authorities upon request of the Ministry of Interior of the Slovak Republic. Peers and experts from the UK, France, Denmark, Greece, Austria, and Ukraine will meet with the Slovak counterparts to discuss and provide advise on the improvements to the system of internal control, audit, and supervision in the country.  

The subject of supervision is highly relevant as many CoE member states are currently engaged in public administration and local government reforms. The recent 2019 Recommendation of the Committee of Ministers to member states on the supervision of local authorities activities recommends that the member states, in particular, “encourage local authorities to create internal control procedures and services to reduce the risks of errors and litigation, and facilitate the relations with external control authorities” and “create appropriate conditions so that those responsible for supervision may advise local authorities, if so requested by them, on legal, financial and administrative matters.” The Recommendation contains also Guidelines on the improvement of the systems of supervision, which propose main principles and types of supervision.
