The Contact Committee is an autonomous, independent and non-political assembly of the heads of supreme audit institutions (SAIs) of European Union (EU) Member States and the European Court of Auditors. It provides a forum to discuss and address matters of common interest relating to the EU.

Within this context the Contact Committee commits itself to:

  • ​fostering dialogue and co-operation in audit and related activities;
  • establishing and promoting common positions on emerging audit and accountability issues; and
  • supporting Contact Committee member SAIs and the SAIs of countries subject to the EU enlargement policy.​

By enhancing co-operation between its members, the Contact Committee contributes to effective external audit and accountability in the EU, and helps improve EU financial management and good governance for the benefit of its citizens.
