On 16 March 2021, the XI meeting of the EUROSAI Task Force on Audit & Ethics (TF A&E) was held, via videoconference, with the participation of the Corte dei conti that has been a member of the Task Force since 2013.

The meeting of 16 March has been the occasion to approve the documents and achievements to be presented to the EUROSAI Congress, which will be held on 14th April, including a proposal for the future of the Task Force.

The Corte dei conti joins, as associate member, the Organization of Latin American and Caribbean Supreme Audit Institutions (OLACEFS).

To give greater evidence of the close relations that join the Corte dei conti and numerous Supreme Audit Institutions of the Latin American and Caribbean area, the Corte dei conti has asked and promptly obtained to join, as associate member, the Organization of Latin American and Caribbean Supreme Audit Institutions (OLACEFS).
The OLACEFS is a regional organization of INTOSAI, international, autonomous, independent, apolitical and permanent, with a long tradition dating back to 1963 (since the proposal of establishment of a Latin American Institute of Auditing Sciences -ILACIF- implemented in 1965) and existing under its current title since 1990.
The Corte dei conti has always had privileged bilateral relations with several Supreme Audit Institutions of the Latin America and Caribbean area and has concluded fruitful cooperation agreements with many of them over time.
Recently, a further impetus of cooperation derived from the best practices shared by the Corte dei conti as model organization particularly due to the synergic action of audit and judicial functions living together and to its acknowledged expertise in the fight against corruption. For these reasons Corte dei conti’s request to become associate member of OLACEFS has been welcomed.
As an associate member of OLACEFS, the Corte dei conti is entitled to the speaking right in the technical and administrative plenary sessions of the General Assemblies, as well as in the administrative plenary sessions of the Governing Board. In addition, Article 42 of the Regulations of the OLACEFS Charter sets out that, in the discharge of its duties, OLACEFS members are grouped into Committees (2), Technical Commissions (5) and in Working Groups. Even before being part of the OLACEFS, the Corte dei conti has cooperated in particular with the Working Group Specialized in the Fight against Transnational Corruption (GTCT) acting as the reviewer its Manual “Handbook of Good Practices to fight corruption” applicable to SAIs in the fight against transnational corruption from the perspective of government audit.
