Parallel audit on Contribution of the Structural Funds to the Europe 2020 Strategy in the areas of Employment and/or Education
The Europe 2020 strategy is designed to promote growth and employment in the EU. The Member States' programmes for the use of Structural Funds allocated to them provide a sound basis for achieving these objectives, although some weaknesses have been found. This is the conclusion drawn by the “Working Group on Structural Funds VII" in its final aggregate report. The weaknesses mainly concern the complexity of regulations and the evaluation of success. Since the end of 2015, EU Member SAIs have worked together in the "Working Group on Structural Funds VII". The German SAI has chaired the working group that studied in eleven Member States whether the Structural Funds have helped making progress towards the Europe 2020 targets. The audit findings have been compiled in the final report. The working group has developed recommendations that are addressed to the European Commission and the Member States.
