Six risk areas identified in drawing EU funds

THE CABINET approved a report on the country's readiness for the management of EU pre-entry and structural funds, in which Deputy PM for EU integration Pál Csáky outlined six risk areas.

The areas include the building of an information-technical monitoring system for structural funds, and incomplete administration of financial control and internal audit, the Slovak daily Hospodárske Noviny wrote.

Other problematic areas include changes to financial plans that affect the state budget, and the training system regarding the amended law on public procurement.

The Slovak cabinet approved the report on November 26.
