Introduction Netherlands Court of Audit

The Netherlands Court of Audit has been auditing 
the government’s income and expenditure for 200 years.

The key question?
Does central government spend public money economically, efficiently and effectively?

On the basis of thorough audits and facts, we express an independent opinion.

We create order and understanding.

What is going well?

What is going wrong?

And how can it be improved?

Because public money must be subject to public audit.

We analyse the consequences of political decisions 
on a great variety of subjects.

Accountability strengthens trust in democracy.

That is why we audit themes that are of great financial and social importance.

All our work begins and ends from the perspective of citizens and businesses.

We follow social and technological innovations closely. 
And develop new standards for the world of information management, privacy and algorithms

We constantly professionalise our working methods and communication. 

Amidst the profusion of data and alternative facts, 
we are INDEPENDENT and RELIABLE.

We express FAIR OPINIONS 
to bring public money into focus.
