  • What are the ways of achieving the best cooperation with other public

    institutions Parliament, law enforcement

    institutions, Universities, nongovernmental

    organizations and other stakeholders?

    How can the best effects of cooperation be

    obtained? How are successful relationships

    forged and maintained? How can the

    optimal results be achieved when working

    with other public institutions? How can we

    reach synergy and why is it not always

    reached?

    While looking for the answers to these

    questions, we identified several possible

    problems of cooperation relevant to our

    SAI. In order to ascertain whether the

    identified problems are specific only to us

    or whether they are applicable to the

    majority of SAIs, we prepared and

    circulated a questionnaire to all the

    members of EUROSAI. More than half the

    respondents completed the survey, which

    asked respondents to identify the TOP 5

    problems related to cooperation with the

    mentioned public sector institutions.

    As a result of our initiative and with the

    help of your SAIs, the TOP 5 problems of

    cooperation with our stakeholders have

    been identified: a lack of motivation, an

    absence

  • absence of a clear strategy and direction, a

    lack of feedback, a lack of time, and differing

    areas of expertise. To solve these problems

    and find the best ways of cooperation, we

    need a team that is ready to look for synergy

    in solving issues; this is known as the

    synergy mindset.

    Our team has taken an unconventional way

    to tackling the identified problems: we have

    decided to compile a recipe book based on

    the survey results. It is not a traditional

    approach to doing things in the public audit

    community. Our decision was influenced by

    a recent wave of recipe books and popular

    cooking shows. We could not ignore the fact

    that cooking books are among the best

    sellers in Lithuania and abroad. This

    collection of recipes is our endeavor to look

    at things from an innovative perspective

    and open the door to a new genre of audit

    literature. The book is not finished yet: we

    need to work together to finalize it.

    I sincerely believe that this jointly written

    book of recipes provides the possibility to

    either choose existing models or to find new

    combinations by mixing the flavors of the

    given ingredients to create new recipes.

    Be creative!

  • When we listen to someone, we face a critical choice. We can choose to defend our view and resist theirs. Or, we can learn to suspend our opinion and the certainty that lies behind it. To suspend is to see things with new eyes.

  • For Lithuanians, the cabbage

    is a ROYAL VEGETABLE. It is

    used to make salads, soups,

    stews, rolls and other dishes,

    which can be sampled in

    many Lithuanian restaurants.

    Kefir: a healthy drink

    Kefir is one of the oldest fermented milk drinks

    known to humanity. It has a positive effect on many

    bodily functions, regulates and maintains the balance of microorganisms in the

    intestines, and also strengthens the immune

    system.

  • COLD BEETROOT SOUP

    You can get a taste of authentic Lithuanian cuisine by trying cold beetroot

    soup!

    The somewhat-shocking bright red colour of the cold beetroot soup comes

    from NATURAL beet juice, and the indescribably refreshing taste comes

    from the most importam component of this cold soup, KEFIR, which

    nutrition specialists call one of the healthiest products in the world! Every

    Lithuanian family makes this low-calorie soup according to their own

    recipe.

    Ingredients

    500 g kefir*

    100 g boiled or marinated beets

    2 fresh cucumbers

    Several onion leaves

    A pinch of fresh dili

    1 egg

    Preparation:

    Lithuanians sometimes replace kefir with soured milk, buttermilk or

    cream thinned with mineral water. If kefir is not available where you live,

    you can look for similar sourmilk products: the natural yogurts available

    in Western Europe or the USA, Buttermilch in Germany, and in Russia,

    Central or South Asia, and in south-eastern Europe, ryazhenka,

    prostokvasha, kumis (kumiss, koumiss, kumys), ayran, laban, dahi, lassi,

    doogh and so on are all excellent substitutes.

    Make it yourself !

    Finely chop the vegetables: cucumbers, beets (you can grate these), onion

    leaves and dill. Mix together in a large bowl.

    Pour the kefir over the vegetables, flavour with salt according to taste, mix

    and leave to stand for several minutes (the longer the mixed vegetables

    stand, the tastier the soup will be).

    Pour the soup into bowls, cut the boiled egg into pieces and add to the

    bowls. Serve with hot boiled potatoes flavoured with dill. Enjoy!
