The History of the Court of Auditors of the German Reich

A survey about the history from 1933 until the foundation of the Federal Court of Auditors (Bundesrechnungshof) in 1950

Since January 2015 Facts & Files had been conducting research on sources about the history of the Court of Auditors of the German Reich on behalf of the Federal Court of Auditors.

In 1868, the Court of Auditors of the North German Confederation succeeded the Prussian Superior Chamber of Accounts. From 1871 the Court of Auditors took over the audits in the whole German Reich. The president of the Superior Chamber of Accounts was at the same time the president of the Court of Auditors.       

The survey started in 2015, its aim was to locate sources on activities of the Court of Auditors of the German Reich not only at German archives but also from abroad. The study examined the role of the Court of Auditors’ key personnel. The project was completed by the end of 2015. More on the history of the Court of Auditors here.
