Extracts from the presentation of the European Court of Auditors annual report (RA2008) by Vítor Manuel da Silva Caldeira, President of the European Court of Auditors, and Siim Kallas, for the EP Committee on Budgetary Control
The European Court of Auditors issued an unqualified opinion on the reliability of the 2008 EU accounts. The Court concluded that the 2008 annual accounts of the European Communities presented fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the European Communities and the results of their operations and cash flows. In terms of the legality and regularity of the transactions underlying the accounts, the overall results for 2008 reflect the improvements in the management of the budget in recent years. The improvement in 2008 is a consequence primarily of better results in the largest policy group “Agriculture and natural resources”, “Cohesion”, which is the second largest policy group, representing almost a third of the budget, remains problematic and is the area most affected by errors. The Court estimated that at least 11 % of the total amount reimbursed should not have been paid out. Past recommendations made by the Court to improve supervisory and control systems still remain valid. They must be seen as parts of an ongoing process, where the relevant measures will take time before they can be deemed to be effective. Particular and additional attention needs to be directed at those expenditure areas where the Court continues to report a high level of error. In many situations the errors are a consequence of too complex rules and regulations. Simplification, therefore, remains a priority. These conclusions are taken from the European Court of Auditors’ 2008 Annual Report, which has been published on 10/11 /2009. Vitor Manuel da Silva Caldeira, President of the European Court of Auditors, Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Administrative Affairs, Audit and Anti-Fraud and Bogusław Liberadzki, Member of the EP took part in the final press conference on this issue.
