On 20–21 September 2016, Vilnius is hosting a seminar on municipal audit by the European Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (EUROSAI). This year's seminar on the Ground-breaking Analysis in Auditing Municipalities – Timely Audit Impact will be attended by representatives of supreme audit institutions from over 24 EUROSAI countries.

The seminar organised by the supreme audit institution of Lithuania will be dedicated to discussions on financial risks of cost-effective resource management in municipalities, new approach to the strategic analysis of the municipal sector, analysis of the presentation of state finance open data and other topics.

At the seminar, representatives of supreme audit institutions of Austria and Hungary will share the benefits of innovative methods of municipality audits and hold workshop sessions offering the opportunity to test some of the methods. Representatives of the supreme audit institution of Lithuania will organise a workshop session for the exchange of experience of various countries in audits of municipality-owned enterprises and the available methods of analysis of financial performance of such enterprises. One of the sessions will take place at the Vilnius City Municipality, where foreign guests and representatives of municipality-owned enterprises will discuss ways of making the management of these enterprises more innovative.

Supreme audit institution of Lithuania has been organising international meetings and seminars on municipal audits since 2013. On 14 June, this year, the EUROSAI Governing Board, moreover, approved the initiative of the Lithuanian supreme audit institution to establish a special-purpose Task Force on Municipality Audit. It is planned that the Task Force will commence its official activities in 2017. All members of EUROSAI seeking to gain more experience and draw on good practice examples from foreign colleagues in the field of municipality audit will be welcome to join the Task Force. Sharing experience and good practice will allow identifying priority fields of audit bearing importance to the public as well as achieving the results, which will help to improve management of public funds and ensure appropriate performance of functions assigned to municipalities.
