- "The Court estimates that the average error rate for rural development expenditure in the past 3 years was 8.2%. Member States' control authorities did not detect the errors as checks are not exhaustive and are based on insufficient information. Some of the main causes of the errors are non-compliance with public procurement rules, suspected intentional infringements by private beneficiaries and non-compliance with farming commitments for area-related aid. The Commission and the Member States are only partially effective in addressing the main causes of the high error rate for rural development. The Court makes a number of specific recommendations for taking corrective and preventive action to address the widespread weaknesses at EU level."--Back cover.
