Summary/Abstract: This analysis was produced in the framework of the project “Determining conditions for the improvement of work of the State Audit Institution in Serbia,“ jointly implemented by the European Project Center and European Policy Centre, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under the Judicial Reform and Government Accountability project (JRGA). This analysis, and the research conducted for its purposes, has the goal to determine how auditees act upon SAI's recommendations, how they perceive external audit system in Serbia and how important it is to insist on the external follow-up on implementation of SAI's recommendations and measures in the future. Engagement of civil society organisations so far in the follow-up work on implementation of SAI's measures is also discussed.In correspondence with existing comparative experience (best practices) and certain international guidelines, it strives to provide recommendations for future role these organisations can have in the establishment of financially accountable government in Serbia. This analysis also places the external audit system into a broader context of reform and integration processes in Serbia, in order to highlight the importance of this area and its correlation with other reform areas.
