Donor funds are audited by the National Audit Office


International financial organizations and donors increase demands to the National Audit Office to audit their funds given to public institutions in Kosovo. 

The financial support from outside through special programmes remains an important source for implementation of development priorities of the Government Program in Kosovo. The National Audit Office, by taking into account the importance of these funds and the impact that they have on improvement of lives of citizens, and based on donors’ request, in 2017 has carried out a financial audit of seven such projects.

Audits cover programmes of funds given by the World Bank through the International Development Association, as well as funds given by the Swedish Government through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). The amount of these funds in 2017 is approximately €6,124,789.

Funds are appropriated for development in the area of education, health, agriculture and economic development, while responsible for their implementation are: The Office of the Prime Minister; Ministry of Education, Science and Technology; Ministry of Health; Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Rural Development; Ministry of Economic Development; Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning, and the Cadastral Agency.

The National Audit Office in the audit season 2018/2019 will audit Annual Financial Statements for 2018 for seven other projects financed from donors’ funds, and one performance audit for a special project.

Audits of financial statements for specific purposes are carried out in accordance with International Standards of Supreme Audit Institutions (ISSAI). To carry out these audits is taken into account compliance with financial reporting requirements, and the quality and accuracy of information presented in the Annual Financial Statements. These audits increase the trust of donors on the management of funds given, and ensure transparency in implementation of projects for citizens.

Reports on special projects and all other reports produced by the National Audit Office can be found on our website
