Corruption Threats in the Light of NIK’s Audits – Reports of the Year 2016
Languages of publication
For many years, the Supreme Audit Office has been , so to speak, a warning system for corruption threats. NIK considers corruption in the broad sense of the term, as all forms of abuse of public functions for illegal private gains. During their examinations, NIK auditors indicate corruption prone mechanisms, i.e. irregularities that cause or increase the risk of corruption. They can be most often encountered in the area of service outsourcing by public entities, especially advisory, expert and legal services where there is a high level of freedom and where certain weaknesses of control of the process exist. The other area with serious corruption threats is location of investments and the functioning of the construction supervision. The article comprises an analysis of eleven audits conducted by NIK in 2016, presenting corruption prone mechanisms in the functioning of the public institutions audited.
