Consultancy assignments by the Flemish government

Dutch speaking chamber on March 12, 2024

At the Flemish Parliament’s request, the Court of Audit examined consultancy assignment expenditure in the current legislature. Different statements by the ministers about the size of that expenditure appear to be a consequence of the way in which they filter accounting information. Examination of the award procedures, especially in negotiated procedures without prior announcement, indicated a number of inadequacies. Neither did Flemish government always properly document its government contracts.
