COUR DES COMPTES

The Cour des comptes has published its sixth annual report, produced jointly with the regional courts of audit, on the financial position and management of local authorities and their public institutions.
It offers a new analysis of the impact of the decrease in state funding over the 2014-2017 period: although offset by the dynamism of tax-raising powers, the decrease in the overall operating allocation (‘DGF’) had the intended effect of stopping the rise in local expenditures. Even if they exercised less cost control in 2017, local authorities generated a financial surplus for the third year in a row, confirming the overall improvement of their financial position.
