THE EUROPEAN Commission sent the first results of its December audit of Slovakia’s so-called social companies to the Labour, Social Affairs and Family Ministry on March 16, though the findings were not made public.

The audit inspected the efficiency of spending of European funds drawn to support a number of projects under the Employment and Social Inclusion Operational Programme, which includes the social companies.

"This so-called draft ... is for professional discussion between the commission and Slovak institutions only. It deals with issues that might not be included within the final inspection report," the Labour Ministry said in a written statement, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The EC will issue a final report with recommendations only after the ministry gives its comments on the draft.
