Interactive Seminar: Financial Accountability and Budgetary Transparency of the Defence Sector

Where and when

14-16 March 2012, Ankara, Turkey


Parliament determines how much public money the state may spend and in what way. This is one of the most powerful instruments of control over the executive. It is used not only by parliament, but also by specialised oversight bodies like the Court of Audit. However, exercising this oversight is a challenge to the determination and the expertise of the controllers.

The training course and seminar will explore these challenges and appropriate responses. Subjects to the discussed will include:

  • The Budget Process: Milestones, Opportunities, Difficulties for Parliament

  • Procurement of Defence Equipment: A Case Study

  • The Role of the Court of Audit


Promoting Good Governance in the Security Sector of Turkey
