Financial Corrections in Agriculture; Follow-up Audit

Bund 2018/3

From February to March 2017, the Austrian Court of Audit (ACA) carried out a follow-up audit at the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW) and the Agrarmarkt Austria Marketing (AMA) to assess the state of implementation of the recommendations it had issued in the framework of its preceding audit on “Financial Corrections in Agriculture” (volume Federation 2014/12).


The ACA found that of the 13 assessed recommendations the BMLFUW and the AMA had implemented seven fully, three in part and two not at all. The ACA could not assess the implementation of one recommendation since the applicable circumstances had ceased to exist.
