Various social issues, such as ageing population, unemployment, education, family issues, care provided to the disabled etc. are widely discussed in most if not all of our countries and have a great share on expenses of state budgets. Social security systems form one of the pillars of our society. Seeing the importance of this topic and being aware of how invaluable sharing experience and exchanging views on international level is, the Czech Supreme Audit Office organised a seminar focused on some of the related topics.
General information about the seminar
The official title of the seminar was "Auditing of Social Security Systems". The following topics were covered in the plenary and discussion groups:
- the European Social Fund
- Fraud and Abuse in Social Security Systems
- Social Services Support (Family, Health, Non Governmental Organisations, etc.)
The main objectives of the seminar were to discuss various topical issues, to learn new lessons and, in particular, to share experience at an international level. The secondary aim of the seminar was to strengthen the networking of SAIs in social security audit field by encouraging participants to make useful contacts.
