Audit Office of the Institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina (SAIBIH)
Lack of systemic approach

"The study showed that, at the level of the institutions of BiH, no systematic approach exists in this area."

"As a consequence, institutions are implementing various telecommunications solutions that cannot be claimed with certainty to be efficient and cost-effective, since no comprehensive analyses have been undertaken."

Not working strategies

"The strategies and parts of strategies addressing this area at the level of BiH have either expired or are not being implemented."

"most institutions failed to properly use market opportunities such as public procurements, where possible, or joint ventures to take advantage of economies of scale."

Technologies not used to increse efficiency

"the possibilities of more efficient use of networks owned by the institutions of BiH have not been sufficiently exploited to reduce the leasing expenses the institutions incur for securing data transmission."

"New technologies that enable more efficient and economical operations are not being implemented or are partially applied."

"The audit showed that a systematic approach to the issue of telecommunication solutions, as well as more responsible behaviour of the institutions towards the use of public funds, by applying the principles of economy and efficiency, can result in significant improvements and savings."


The audit examined whether a systematic approach was in place to using the public money for the purposes of telecommunication solutions in the institutions of BiH and whether the institutions of BiH undertook necessary activities to ensure cost-effectiveness and efficiency of existing telecommunications solutions.
