Ivan Klešić awarded SOLIDUS 2021

On 11 February 2021, the State Audit Office of the Republic of Hungary presented the SOLIDUS 2021 Award to Ivan Klešić, Auditor General of the Republic of Croatia, at the opening ceremony of the International Integrity Seminar, as a special recognition for his contribution to the development and work of the Hungarian State Audit Office and its international reputation.
The SOLIDUS Award was established in 2016 and is awarded to individuals whose outstanding results have contributed to further improving the professional reputation of the Hungarian Office, as well as its social and constitutional significance, or who have participated in building its international relations and contributing to more efficient use of public money.
The State Audit Office of the Republic of Hungary and the State Audit Office of the Republic of Croatia have long-term and successful institutional cooperation.
In addition to the always open exchange of information, methodology and audit approaches through bilateral meetings, multilateral workshops and project tasks, a particularly important aspect of cooperation was related to parallel and coordinated audits, of which several were performed with Hungarian colleagues: from the Danube Convention audit to coordinated audit of strategic programs for tourism development, to the still current coordinated audit of measures taken to alleviate poverty.
The State Audit Office of the Republic of Croatia has also supported Hungarian colleagues during professional international events - organized or hosted by Hungary - by accepting initiatives and invitations for presentations or moderating workshops.
It is important to point out that all joint efforts have always been based on mutual respect and trust; conducted in a friendly atmosphere, they have always resulted in success, so the cooperation of these two institutions can be highlighted as a true example of good practice.
In addition, Ivan Klešić continuously contributes to the professional and social reputation of the State Audit Office of the Republic of Hungary and the joint participation of both institutions in EUROSAI ITWG, EUROSAI WGEA, EUROSAI TFAE and EUROSAI TFMA.
Based on the above, László Domokos, President of the State Audit Office of the Republic of Hungary, this year awarded the SOLIDUS Award to Ivan Klešić.
