To remain at the forefront of developments in public-sector auditing, we plan our strategic development and audit priorities in advance. Our core objectives are set out in multi-year strategies.
We at the European Court of Auditors (ECA) have adopted our new strategy for the coming five years.
Our strategy builds on the achievements made so far and will guide our work as the EU’s independent external auditor until 2025.
Mindful of the challenges the EU is facing, we will fulfil our role to make our contribution to a more resilient, sustainable and fair European Union.
Our 2021-25 strategy presents how we intend to do that by pursuing three strategic goals:
- Goal 1: Improving accountability, transparency and audit arrangements across all types of EU action;
- Goal 2: Targeting our audits on the areas and topics where we can add most value; and
- Goal 3: Providing strong audit assurance, in a challenging and changing environment.
In addition, our 2021-25 strategy also sets out our values, mission and vision as well as an overview of the means that will help us to meet our strategic goals.
