The Austrian Court of Audit is the Supreme Audit Institution of the Republic of Austria.

More than 200 auditors examine whether public institutions use the taxpayers’ money in an efficient, effective and economic way. About 310 staff members are working at your service to ensure that the state’s expenses are reasonable.

The Austrian Court of Audit, as the Supreme Audit Institution of the state, is independent and committed to complying with the International Standards of Supreme Audit Institutions (ISSAIs).

Therefore, we are independent in auditing

the Federal Government, the provinces and the municipalities,
all the areas that use public funds

the Organisation of Austrian Social Security

and the professional representations (chambers)


We audit for example: schools, funds, hospitals, transport and construction projects, cultural institutions, the police, environmental issues and much more. Overall, we audit about 6,000 public institutions.

You can find and access the results of the audits on our website. You can search for all of our reports <here>>{Link Suche}. Every report provides an analysis of the status quo and target-oriented possible solutions.

The Austrian Court of Audit works for the National Council, the provincial parliaments and the municipal councils. The members of the aforementioned bodies receive the reports containing the recommendations of the Austrian Court of Audit. The unabridged versions of these reports are also published on this website.
