Our aim is to ensure that EU development and humanitarian aid reaches its intended beneficiaries, without being diverted by fraud and corruption.
Who are OLAF partners?
A growing number of investigative, administrative and judicial partner services in non-EU countries and international organisations who have the competence to exercise controls over projects financed by the European Union and being implemented outside the EU's territory, and also to investigate and/or prosecute cases of fraud, corruption and other illegal activities affecting those funds.
International cooperation is important because large amounts of EU funds are disbursed in non-EU countries or channelled through other donors or international organisations.
OLAF's partner services are often responsible for monitoring EU-funded aid projects, investigating irregularities and bringing prosecutions where necessary.
