Since 1 April, on-site work has become the norm again. We are nevertheless continuing to make every effort to reduce the impact of the pandemic on our staff and minimise the risk to them and to their families. We are nevertheless continuing to make every effort to reduce the impact of the pandemic on our staff and minimise the risk to them and to their families.
Since the pandemic began, we have done everything we can to continue providing an effective public audit service in the EU and delivering timely audit reports, opinions and reviews.
Where appropriate, we have re-scoped our ongoing tasks and adjusted our approach and timeline to take account of changing circumstances.
Our work programme has also been substantially affected by the unprecedented crisis we are facing. A quarter of all audit tasks we have started deal with the EU's response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the implementation of the 'Next Generation EU' (NGEU) initiative. In the coming months, we will publish our audit findings on, among other things: the EU's Covid-19 vaccine procurement, the right of free movement in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the food supply chain during the pandemic, the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative (CRII) and REACT –EU, the relevance of national recovery and resilience plans (NRRPs).
