Declaration of the Conference of Presidents of the German SAI and the audit institutions of the German federal states on the draft law to amend the Parliamentary Groups Act in the state of Brandenburg

Against the background of the draft law to amend the Parliamentary Groups Act in the state of Brandenburg, the Conference of Presidents of the German SAI and the audit institutions of the German federal states has adopted the following declaration:

The Presidents of the German SAI and of the audit institutions of the German federal states point out that the independence of audit institutions guaranteed in the Constitution is a major pillar of a democratic government system.

They express their regret that the regional audit institution of the state of Brandenburg has not been given the opportunity prior to the intended amendment of the Parliamentary Groups Act to advance reasons against the proposed amendment of the law.

The Presidents of the German SAI and of the audit institutions of the German federal states wish to underline that they are adamantly opposed to any regulations that impede the independence of audit institutions, curtail their audit mandates, undermine their functioning in major aspects or constrain the impact of their audit work.
