Press Release: Need for better interinstitutional cooperation on reviewing laws

The European Commission’s system of reviewing laws compares well overall with its equivalents in the Member States, according to a new report by the European Court of Auditors. High-quality ex-post reviews are critical to the quality of legislation, say the auditors.

Press Release: EU Public Private Partnerships suffer from widespread shortcomings and limited benefits

EU co-financed Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) cannot be regarded as an economically viable option for delivering public infrastructure, according to a new report from the European Court of Auditors. The PPPs audited suffered from widespread shortcomings and limited benefits, resulting in €1.5 billion of inefficient and ineffective spending.
