Dear Mr Nicholson,

The reports that you have requested can be found here:
 [1]http://eca.europa.eu/portal/page/portal/...

According to Article 162 paragraph 1 of the Financial Regulation
(Regulation No 966/2012), the Court’s audit observations, submitted to the
auditee concerned “must remain confidential”. Only those observations that
the Court has decided to include in its final report may be disclosed to
the public.

Article 4, paragraph 2 of the Court of Auditor's  Decision  (No 12 /2005)
on public access to Court Documents states, with reference to the FR, that
the Court shall refuse access to its audit observations and may also
refuse access to documents used in the preparation of those observations.

Article 4, paragraph 3 of    Decision  No 12 /2005 states that the Court
is to refuse access to a document where disclosure would undermine inter
alia the protection of inspections, investigations and audits.

The preliminary observations you have requested are covered by this
exception.

We draw your attention to the fact that, pursuant to Article 7 of Decision
No. 12/2005, you may make a request for reconsideration within 15 working
days of receiving this reply, and ask the ECA to reconsider its position.

Sincerely,

Aidas Palubinskas
