The role of Supreme Audit Institutions in fight against the consequences of financial and economic crisis: A theoretical approach
There is a significant pressure on Supreme Audit Institutions in Europe: shrinking available resources and growing expectations from its stakeholders (citizens, civil organizations, investors, governments etc.). In consequence of the financial and economic crisis and the unpredictable shocks, imbalances there is a relevant need for good governance and effective spending of public money. The Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) – as independent external auditor of the budget – is intended to reach appropriate level of audit impact by using its inputs. This impact may result lower governmental expenditures, effectiver public finance management, increasing trust, transparency and accountability. Responding to the constantly changing circumstances the SAI should use and activate non-conventional resources such as knowledge and social capital to be more adaptive, effective and to achieve its strategic goals.
