On November 10, 2020, the senior management of the State Audit Service had a video meeting with EU-OECD / SIGMA experts Brian Finn and Joop Vrolijk.

In his introductory speech, the Chairman of the State Audit Service thanked the EU-OECD / SIGMA experts for their readiness to conduct an active dialogue with Ukraine, provide expert assistance in developing legislative initiatives which will meet modern European standards and today's realities, which, in turn, promotes better integration of Ukraine to the world community.

In this context, Gennady Plis stressed the importance of the manual "Estimated value of contracts, technical specifications, abnormally low tenders and modification of contracts during its execution" developed by SIGMA experts, which is of great value to the State Audit Service in terms of future practical implementation of its provisions.
