2.    The Summary of the Annual Audit Report Submitted to Parliament
In accordance with the Article 55 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Official General Session of the Parliament hosted the presentation of the Annual Audit Report for the Fiscal Year 2017, which was compiled by the Supreme Audit Court of I. R. Iran (SAC). The summary of the Report was presented by Prof. Dr. Adel Azar, the President of SAC, during the Official General Session of the Parliament on 24 January 2018. It is noteworthy to mention that the Annual Audit Report contains the results of detailed audits conducted and consolidated by the SAC indicating how the annual national budget has been spent in a given fiscal year.

In the same session, Dr. Adel Azar initially appreciated continuous efforts of his colleagues, in preparing the Report. He presented the summary of the Report in the three sections: 1) Revenues and expenditures; 2) Notes of Single Article of the Budget Law; and 3) Recommendations to improve the budgeting process.

He added that although the Parliament conferred two months more than the time stipulated in the law on the government to spend the Budget for the Year 2017 in the field of construction and financial bills, including treasury bills, the continuous collaboration and cooperation of all the staff of the SAC led them to prepare and present the summary of the Report in due time.

The President of SAC referred to such important issues as allocation of resources to the construction projects in the country, the budget of state-owned enterprises, banks and government-affiliated institutions and state aid to loss-making public companies and emphasized that there should be an urgent action in these cases.

Dr. Larijani, the Chairman of the Parliament, appreciated the efforts of the SAC for preparing and presenting the Report in time and added that they would send the Report to the Planning, Budget and Audit Commission as well as other concerned commissions for further reviews, especially the cases highlighted by the President of SAC.
