Dear colleagues,

the questionnaire on Municipality budget/accountancy data in SAIs will be send out soon. We want to remind you that we are always open for comments and questions and that we want to offer our help by means of this forum. So use the possibility if there are any issues you want to discuss or share. For those SAIs, whose countries are part of the European Union, we want to give a hint regarding the data collections process. As the ECOFIN is responsible für the monitoring of Member States' budgetary policy and public finances, it is quite likely that there is central institution (department,...) in your Ministry of Finance, which has all the information you need for the questionnaire. In Austria this department is supported by the national statistical agency, so we could gather the necessary informationen even from two institutions, because both should know the process. If you face a different situation in your country and the gathering of information is more difficult please don't hesitate to contact us and share your ecperience.


As a service we attached you to this post three documents:
1. the questionnaire itself
2. a side letter with a brief explanation of what it is all about
3. the questionnaire filled out with the example of Austria

Hi, Richard.
I am responsible for filling out the Questionnaire for the use of municipality accountancy data in SAIs as a representative of Lithuania NAO and I have few questions regarding it which may be relevant for others as well. I would like to ask you about the question No. 6 “How would you rate the quality of the available municipality budget data”:
  • What do you mean by “available municipality budget data“? Is available mean published? Or maybe it means data provided to SAI (not open data) by institution which is involved in the data collection process?
  • What kind of criteria we should have to use to evaluate the quality of the data?
  • Best regards,
    Kęstutis

    Hi Kestutis,

    happy to hear that you are already working for the questionnaire :-)

    As for your questions:
    1. Available data means every data which is provided to your SAI. So it comprises published (open) data as well as data which is only provided for the institutions involved.

    2. We use mainly the following criterions:
    - Is the data correct?
    - Is the data complete?
    - Is the data well prepared for the subsequent work steps?

    If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us!
    yours
    Andy
