Magazine No. 26 - 2021 59 EUROSAI Working Groups and Task Forces Following the conclusions and recommendations of the VIII EUROSAI Congress that was held in Lisbon in June 2011, the Task Force on Audit & Ethics (TFA&E) was set up by the Governing Board meeting immediately after the Congress, in order to operationalise its decisions. The mandate of the TFA&E was to “promote the relevance of ethical conduct and integrity, both in SAIs and in public organisations” From 2011 until 2021, the TFA&E carried out its workplans, that were prepared in the scope of two different EUROSAI Strategic Plans (2011-2017; and 2017-20241 ). The Court of Auditors of Portugal, Chair of the TFA&E during these 10 years, is proud of the results achieved, all of them due to the extraordinary membership of the Task Force. In fact, the 32 EUROSAI SAIs that participated in the TFA&E’s work along the period of its existence were key for the team spirit, the mutual support environment and the success of the multiple initiatives carried out and also for the internal and external recognition received. 1 One extra year due to the pandemic From 2011 until 2021, the TFA&E carried out its workplans, that were prepared in the scope of two different EUROSAI Strategic Plans (2011-2017; and 2017-20241).
