A word on the ‘2020 performance report in brief’
The ‘2020 performance report in brief’ provides an overview of our ‘report on the performance of the EU budget – Status at the end of 2020’, in which we examined a specific aspect of the EU performance framework, analysed the results achieved by a sample of EU spending programmes and reviewed to what extent recommendations from our 2017 special reports have been implemented by our auditees.

The European Court of Auditors (ECA) is the independent external auditor of the EU. We warn of risks, provide assurance, highlight shortcomings and good practice, and offer guidance to EU policymakers and legislators on improving the management of EU policies and programmes. Through our work we ensure that EU citizens know how their money is being spent.
