INTOSAI Folie 2 I.The Lisbon Strategy for Growth and Jobs In 2000, Heads of States and Governments launched the Lisbon Strategy Benchmarking as means of improving the implementation record of structural reforms increased
INTOSAI Folie 3 II.Structural Indicators as Key National Indicators Structural Indicators Instrument to align the national policies with the overall EU goals Indicators should help to communicate complex issues and highlight interlinkages and trade-offs Peer pressure and mutual learning through information sharing among the policy makers at national level should be achieved.

INTOSAI Folie 5 III.Role and Key Challenges of SAI Challenges SAI`s Involvment vs SAI`s independence Data availability Data comparability Measurement problems
INTOSAI Folie 6 III.Role and Key Challenges of SAI Role of SAI 1. SAI could provide information to contribute to Lisbon-type structural reforms –Provide information on gains and costs of reforms –Outline opportunity costs of no-policy-change –Identify cost drivers
INTOSAI Folie 7 Role and Key Challenges of SAI Ex. Pension Reform in Austria - Highlighting opportinity costs!
INTOSAI Folie 8 III.Role and Key Challenges of SAI Role of SAI 2. SAI could provide context information as regards key national indicators –Evaluate country specifics (social system, public transfers, etc.) to ease the design of indicators –Provide additional performance information to support decision making on KNI
INTOSAI Folie 9 Conclusion SAI could mobilise its own instruments to contibute to the needed information to trigger structural reforms. SAI could help to overcome data and measurement problems as audits could deliver the missing link of information needed to rely on KNI.
