Saxony-Anhalt: Court of Auditors criticizes budget management by municipalities

The state audit office presented a report on the financial situation of the municipalities in Saxony-Anhalt on Tuesday. During their audits, the authority found numerous violations.

Magdeburg (dpa/sa) - The state audit office has found numerous deficiencies in the budget management of several municipalities in Saxony-Anhalt. There are still municipalities in the country without an audited opening balance sheet. However, this has been mandatory since 2013. The municipalities have the obligation to draw up their budgets according to a new system. For the so-called double budget management, an opening balance must be drawn up, which is updated annually. In this context, annual accounts must also be submitted, where many municipalities are also lagging behind.

State Audit Office President Kay Barthel wants to present these and other results on Tuesday (10:00 a.m.) with an annual report on the financial situation of the municipalities in Magdeburg. In addition, further results of selected tests in the municipal sector are to be presented. Among other things, the authority examined the budget and economic management of the municipality of Sülzetal (district of Börde) and found numerous deficiencies and violations.

The indebtedness of the individual rural districts and urban districts was also analyzed. In addition, the examiners carried out a cross-sectional study to assess the war graves maintenance of the municipalities.
