Magazine No. 26 - 2021 15 EUROSAI Activities 51st EUROSAI Governing Board online meeting The 51st meeting of the EUROSAI Governing Board (GB) was virtually held on the 3 June 2020. The meeting was chaired by Mr Seyit Ahmet Baş, former President of the Turkish Court of Accounts (TCA) and President of EUROSAI, with the participation of the GB members. During the meeting, the agenda of the 51st GB meeting and the minutes of the 50th GB meeting were approved. Due to the pandemic, XI EUROSAI Congress had been postponed until 30 May - 3 June 2021. The postponement of the XI Congress also brought about the extension of the term of office of the current Governing Board members. Similarly, given that the new auditors would not be appointed by the Congress until June 2021, and by then the 2020 financial statements needed to be audited, the GB adopted the formal decision to extend the tenure of the SAIs of Bulgaria and Croatia as current external auditors of EUROSAI until the XI Congress. The GB also approved to extend the budget 20182020 for an additional year (2021), which implies that the group fees of EUROSAI members would not be revised nor modified. Regarding the WGEA and ITWG, the GB approved the extension of the mandates of the WGEA (chaired by SAI Poland) and ITWG (chaired by SAI Estonia) until the XI Congress (where their extension until 2024 will be included in the draft resolution to be submitted to the Congress for approval). In respect of the Working Group on the Audit of Funds Allocated to Disasters and Catastrophes, the Task Force Audit & Ethics and the Task Force on Municipality Audit, the GB approved: • The extension of their current respective Chairmanships until the XI Congress. • The extension of the WG’s and TF’s mandates until the XI Congress. Additionally, the GB took note that the reporting of portfolios and WGs/TFs will be done on a 4-year basis, to the GB immediately before the Congress. The GB was concluded with the decision to hold the next GB meeting in autumn, with the attendance of observers and guests, as usual. 52nd EUROSAI Governing Board online meeting 52nd EUROSAI Governing Board meeting, chaired by Mr Seyit Ahmet Baş, former President of Turkish Court of Accounts (TCA) and EUROSAI, was held online on 12 November 2020 which also coincided with the 30th Anniversary of EUROSAI.
