Concurrent session 6.5 - Non Financial Reporting in the Public Sector
It is impossible to ignore the importance of entities reporting non-financial information to their stakeholders in order to explain both how they create value and how they will continue to do so in the long term.
Better communication of objectives is of greater relevance in the Public Sector because citizens demand more transparency in management and proper resource utilization.
The European Regulation set out to enhance this type of reporting and, in 2017, it became mandatory for some companies. Although documents are focused on the private sector, steps are being taken at international level to help the public sector adapt frameworks by taking into account its special characteristics.
ECIIA and EUROSAI have a common project that can be a fantastic opportunity to determine the current situation regarding non-financial reporting in the European public sector and to influence its implementation in the future. There is a lot of information / publications about this topic in the Private Sector, but nothing about the situation regardingimplementation in the Public Sector.
If Internal and External Audit work together on this important topic in the Public Sector, our combined efforts can help us to better shape its future implementation.
