EU auditors warn of weak controls in construction of headquarters

The European Central Bank has been told by European Union auditors that there
were weaknesses in controls for the construction of its £362m Frankfurt
headquarters

The EU Court of Auditors said evidence was lacking that best value for money
had always been achieved in tenders and that there were some weaknesses in risk
