Reports to Parliament
Annual activity report
The National Audit Office submits an annual activity report to Parliament each year by the end of September on the basis of section 6 of the Act on the National Audit Office (676/2000). It can also submit separate reports to Parliament as needed. According to established practice a separate report on the audit of the final central government accounts and the Report on the Final Central Government Accounts is submitted to Parliament each year in the spring.
As the authority responsible for monitoring election funding the National Audit Office submits a report to Parliament within eight months of the confirmation of election results. It reports to Parliament annually on the monitoring of party funding. These tasks are based on the Act on a Candidate's Election Funding and the Act on Political Parties.
The National Audit Office requests a statement on draft audit reports from auditees. The purpose is to hear views on the office's tentative positions and to ensure that the report does not contain factual errors or misinterpretations. Statements as well as a summary of statements prepared by the office are available in Finnish in connection with audit reports as of the beginning of 2013.
