As independent audit bodies, supreme audit institutions are responsible for making sure that society and all stakeholders get information on the success of government policies. With the accession to the EU, each country agreed to implement common European policies, the successful implementation of which directly depends on the contributions of Member States. The wider basis of comparison among approaches used in individual countries offers valuable information on their practical application, makes it possible to share good practices and facilitates the presentation of emerging challenges.
