Audit is an important part of the supervision system of the party and the state, and an important force to promote the modernization of the national governance system and governance capacity. The purpose of reforming the audit management system and establishing the Central Audit Committee is to strengthen the centralized and unified leadership of the Party Central Committee over audit work. Since the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Central Audit Committee has fully implemented the decision-making and deployment of the Party Central Committee, focused on building a centralized, unified, comprehensive, authoritative and efficient audit supervision system, strengthened the top-level design, overall coordination, overall promotion, and supervision of major work in the audit field, and promoted The audit system has achieved systematic and holistic reconstruction, and the audit work has achieved historic achievements and historic changes.

In the past five years, under the centralized and unified leadership of the Party Central Committee, the audit work has actively served the overall development of the party and the country, continuously summarized the development laws of the socialist audit industry with Chinese characteristics, kept integrity, innovated, and actively explored, and embarked on a new audit that fits China's national conditions. Way, the new era of governance has achieved important institutional results in the audit field.

The first is to further promote the reform of the audit management system, and the centralized and unified leadership of the Party Central Committee over the audit work has been continuously refined and institutionalized. Establish the Central Audit Committee, convene 5 plenary meetings of the Central Audit Committee, study and deliberate major issues of audit supervision, make overall plans and coordinate the promotion of major work in the audit field, and strengthen the leadership and guidance of the work of the audit committees of local party committees at all levels. The Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee hears and considers reports on the audit of the implementation of the central budget and other fiscal expenditures every year. The Central Audit Office, the member units of the Central Audit Committee, and the audit committees of local party committees fully implement the requirements of the Party Central Committee for the deployment of audit work, and effectively implement the party's leadership in all aspects of the audit work. Under the centralized and unified leadership of the Party Central Committee, the operating mechanism of audit work has been continuously optimized and improved, and the formation of a national game of audit work has been accelerated.

From May 11 to 12, 2023, Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, President of the State, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission inspected Hebei and presided over a symposium on deepening the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.

Second, the understanding of the regularity of the socialist audit with Chinese characteristics has been deepened. We insist on conducting audits around the work of the Party and the State, on the overall concept of national security, on the idea of people-centered development, and on promoting the Party's self-revolution, with a clearer direction for auditing. In practice, actively explore the formation of the Party Central Committee centralized and unified leadership as the political leadership, based on economic supervision positioning focus on the main responsibility of the main business as a housekeeping skills, to carry out research-oriented audit as the only way, audit professionalism and professional ability as an important guarantee of the audit work pattern, ideas and measures more effective.

Third, the audit serves the overall situation of the party and the country with stronger initiative and higher compatibility, and the unique supervisory role is more prominent. We continue to expand the breadth and depth of audit supervision, and effectively eliminate blind spots and dead corners of supervision. Over the past five years, we have audited more than 470000 units, covering localities, departments and units that manage and use public funds, state-owned assets, and state-owned resources. The audit work focuses on the party's central task, achieves quantitative improvement and qualitative leap, and reveals some outstanding problems in economic and social operation. Through the audit, we have seriously dealt with a number of typical problems with significant impact, revealed some major risks and hidden dangers affecting economic security, eradicated some "malignant tumors" that seriously hindered the reform and development, promoted the solution of some "stubborn miasma" that had not been solved for a long time, and punished a number of "flies and greed" that infringed on the vital interests of the masses ".

Fourth, the overall pattern of audit rectification has taken shape, and the use of audit results is more smooth, authoritative and efficient. We make it clear that audit rectification is an important part of effectively giving full play to the role of audit supervision, establish and improve a long-term mechanism for rectification and reform of audit problems, constantly increase the intensity of supervision and promotion of rectification and reform in all aspects, and put more solid pressure on the responsibility of rectification and reform. Audit rectification has "moved the truth". Audit and discipline inspection and supervision, inspection and inspection, organization and personnel supervision and coordination continue to deepen, with audit supervision as the starting point, case investigation as the starting point, the implementation of local main responsibility as the foothold of the through collaborative work mechanism initially formed, audit found that the problem can be handed over and dealt.

These changes and achievements made in the audit work are the concrete practice of the socialist thought with Chinese characteristics in the audit field in the new era, which shows the truth power of the party's innovative theory, and has distinct characteristics of the times and practicality. It is necessary to summarize and make good use of the Party's theoretical and practical achievements in audit work in the new era, adhere to and continuously enrich and develop for a long time, and guide audit work to achieve greater achievements.

At present, China's development has entered a period of coexistence of strategic opportunities and risks and challenges, and increasing uncertainties and unpredictable factors. On the new journey of building a strong country and rejuvenating the nation, auditing shoulders an important mission, should be based on the positioning of economic supervision, focus on the main responsibility, and give better play to the unique role of auditing in promoting the party's self-revolution. The more severe and complex the situation is, the more we must uphold and strengthen the party's overall leadership, and further strengthen and improve the centralized and unified leadership of the party Central Committee over audit work. The Central Audit Committee has a great responsibility and an important role. To do a good job in the work of the new Central Audit Committee, we must adhere to the guidance of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, thoroughly implement the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, completely, accurately and comprehensively implement the new development concept, accelerate the construction of a new development pattern, and strive to promote High-quality development, focus on overall, long-term, and strategic issues, strengthen strategic planning and top-level design in the audit field, and guarantee the overall situation of the party and national work. The Central Audit Office should continue to play a good role in overall planning and coordination, intensify its work, promote coordinated implementation, and improve the quality and efficiency of supervision. The member units of the Central Audit Committee should take the lead in supporting and cooperating with the audit, deepen the application of audit results, and enhance the joint force of supervision.

1. to further promote the high-quality development of audit work.

To do a good job in the audit work of the new era and new journey, the general requirement is to build a centralized, unified, comprehensive coverage, authoritative and efficient audit supervision system, and to better play the role of audit supervision, focusing on the "three such". One is like an arm. We emphasize that audit supervision should be centralized and unified, that is, to adhere to and strengthen the centralized and unified leadership of the Party Central Committee over the audit work, and audit work should be carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Party Central Committee, just like an arm directing fingers, with ease and ease of use. This requires, on the one hand, to form a national chess game that is consistent from top to bottom within the audit system to unify thinking, will, and action; on the other hand, it is necessary to enhance the political attributes and political functions of auditing, improve political capabilities, and control the intentions of the Party Central Committee. And the deployment is accurate, understood, and implemented well to ensure that the Party Central Committee orders and prohibitions. Two is like a shadow. We emphasize that audit supervision should be fully covered, that is, to eliminate the blind spots and dead corners of supervision, so that the audit should be audited, all the audit must be strict, serious accountability, so that the audit object feels that the audit is always around like a shadow, always have the consciousness of "three feet above the head have supervision, not afraid of people know fear of audit. This requires that, in form, the audit and supervision power of all localities, departments, and units that manage and use public funds, state-owned assets, and state-owned resources is not omitted, without exception, to form a normalized and dynamic deterrent; in content, Take into account quality and efficiency, and form a practical and substantial deterrent with in-depth supervision of key areas, key areas, key units, and key personnel. Three is thunderous. We emphasize that audit supervision should be authoritative and efficient, that is, audit through its own efforts to win a good reputation, all parties trust audit, support audit, cooperate with audit, so that audit supervision can be smoothly implemented, audit results can be used efficiently, audit role can be effectively played. This requires that, on the one hand, we must practice our internal skills, adhere to the audit according to law, do solid research audit, carry forward the spirit of struggle, enhance the ability of struggle, build a "special force" for economic supervision, and check the problems accurately, deeply and thoroughly; on the other hand, we should do a good job in the coordination of audit supervision and other supervision, form a joint force of supervision, and achieve rectification, handling and accountability in place.

The "imperial sword" of the audit is granted by the Party Central Committee, and it must be responsible to the Party Central Committee and be a good weapon of the party and the country. It is necessary to completely, accurately, and comprehensively understand and implement the requirements of the Party Central Committee for the deployment of audit work, insist on being brave and strict, take the decision-making and deployment of the Party Central Committee as the yardstick, and take laws and regulations as the criterion. It is necessary to report the problems found in the audit to the Party Central Committee in a complete, accurate, and comprehensive manner, insist on speaking and speaking, not being driven by any interests, not yielding to any force, and not trying to figure out the leadership's ideas, and report the problems as they are.

The understanding and support of party committees and governments at all levels, relevant departments and units for auditing should not remain verbal, but should be implemented in practical actions. The so-called "those who speak are not guilty, those who hear them are full of warning". We should have a correct and clear understanding of the audit, accept the problems pointed out by the audit with an open mind, and seriously adopt the suggestions put forward by the audit. We should have this mind and elegance, and we should not cover up the ugliness and protect the shortcomings or even confront them. The Party Central Committee has set an example.

2. do a solid job in this year's audit

This year is the first year to fully implement the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. We have adopted a series of measures, and the enthusiasm for promoting development in all aspects is high. The economic operation has started well, showing a trend of stabilization and recovery. However, the overall world economic situation is not optimistic, and there are still many difficulties, challenges and uncertainties. It is necessary to adhere to the general tone of the work of seeking progress while maintaining stability, focus on the five major policies of finance, currency, industry, science and technology, and society, highlight the major issues of the outline, and increase audit efforts, and promote all regions, departments, and units to implement and implement the Party Central Committee's decision-making and deployment. Good.

Focus on the primary task of high-quality development.We will strengthen supervision over the implementation of major projects, major strategies and major measures, promote the complete, accurate and comprehensive implementation of the new development concept by all localities, departments and units, speed up the construction of a new development pattern, and strive to promote high-quality development. we will promote the resolution of the imbalance and inadequacy of development and improve the quality and efficiency of development.

We should focus on steady growth and stable employment and stable prices.We will continue to keep an eye on the precious financial funds, intensify the audit of the implementation of the package of policies and measures to stabilize the economy, focus on the coordination and cooperation between policies, strive to break through the implementation of the silt points and difficulties, promote the smooth flow of government decrees, and ensure that policy measures are effective.

Focus on real economic development.Intensify the audit of the implementation of financial support for the real economy and the policy of helping enterprises to bail out, promote the implementation of the "two unshakable", help optimize the business environment, protect the legitimate rights and interests of private enterprises, promote stable expectations, boost confidence, stimulate market vitality and develop endogenous momentum.

We should focus on promoting the bottom line of people's livelihood.Persist in the sinking of audit forces at the grassroots level, and focus on the most direct and practical interests of the people in key areas of people's livelihood such as employment, special care, medical care, education, implementation of rural revitalization strategies, and stable production and supply of important agricultural products. Focus on the key links in the allocation and use of people's livelihood funds, strengthen supervision and inspection, promote the implementation of policies that benefit the people and enrich the people, maintain fairness and justice, and improve people's livelihood.

Focus on integrated development and security.Give full play to the "probe" role of economic operation, pay close attention to local government debt, finance, real estate, food, energy and other key areas, enhance foresight, enhance sensitivity, and firmly hold the bottom line of systemic risks.

To focus on the power to regulate the operation.We should give full play to the important role of audit in anti-corruption and chaos control, supervise the operation of public power along the flow of funds and projects, be optimistic about "money bags" and "account books", and promote the government to live a "tight life". With a zero-tolerance attitude, we must persist in exposing and investigating major violations of discipline and law, resolutely investigate and deal with corruption that is intertwined with political and economic issues, resolutely investigate and deal with corruption in areas where power is concentrated, capital-intensive, and resource-rich, and resolutely investigate and deal with the "flies" around the masses. Corruption ". It is necessary to pay close attention to the key industries, important areas, and key links involved in institutional reform, seriously investigate and deal with violations of regulations and disciplines in the process of reform, prevent the loss of state-owned assets, and ensure the safety of financial funds.

Audit rectification "the second half of the article" is as important as revealing the problem "the first half of the article", and must be promoted as a whole. The purpose of deepening the coordination between audit supervision and other kinds of supervision is to make good use of audit results, play a good "combination fist" in audit rectification, and strengthen the investigation of responsibility and organizational handling. Whoever should rectify should be rectified and who should be responsible should be responsible. It is necessary to take the supervision of audit rectification as an important starting point for daily supervision, take the audit results as an important reference for the assessment, appointment and removal, rewards and punishments of cadres, and carry out special rectification on recurring and frequent problems. We should keep an eye on major problems and pursue them to the end, carry out rectification and reform in a timely manner, look back, and kill more "return carbine". Those who are ineffective in rectification, perfunctory rectification and false rectification should be held accountable seriously, and those who should be exposed should be exposed. The clues to the problems found and transferred by the audit must not be investigated and dealt with, nor can they be "held high and gently put down". This kind of treatment is worse than not dealing with the impact. On the contrary, it will encourage the idea of passing the customs and the "broken window effect". We must find out the truth and make sure that there is an echo in every case.

3. strengthen the construction of audit itself

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of audit institutions. Since its establishment in 1983, audit institutions have always focused on the central work of the party and the state, consciously served the overall situation, and played an important role in promoting the prohibition of the Party Central Committee, maintaining economic order, strengthening financial discipline, and deepening the fight against corruption and chaos, providing a strong guarantee for the development of the party and the state. "Forty without doubt". Audit self-construction has accumulated some good experience. The audit team is loyal to its duties, daring to take responsibility, and selfless. It uses practical actions to investigate and deal with major problems and reveal major risks to practice absolute loyalty, absolute excellence, and absolute reliability, creating a "national audit" The golden sign is worthy of the trust of the party and the people.

In the new era and new journey, the Party Central Committee has high hopes for audit. The mission of audit work is glorious and the task is more arduous. It is necessary to inherit the glorious tradition and fine style of auditing, keep in mind the mission, live up to the heavy trust, forge ahead, work hard, strengthen the feelings of performing duties for the country and the people, shape professionalism, and improve professional capabilities. It is necessary to comprehensively and strictly govern the party and review, earnestly carry out in-depth thematic education and audit team education and rectification in accordance with the deployment of the Party Central Committee, build a loyal, clean and responsible team of high-quality professional audit cadres, promote the high-quality development of audit work in the new era, and continue to create audit work The new situation will make new and greater contributions to the comprehensive construction of a modern socialist country.

Party committees at all levels should earnestly shoulder their political responsibilities, improve their leadership in audit work, make good use of the platform of audit committee and audit office, straighten out the working mechanism, and resolutely prevent the old method from operating the new system. The main responsible comrades should personally grasp and manage them, give full play to the role of the audit committee in taking the lead in grasping the general and overall planning and coordination, strengthen the level and intensity of the unification, and pay close attention to improving the mechanism and strengthening the mechanism if the work is not functioning well and the connection is not smooth.
