In 1994–1996 he cooperated with the Audit Commission (Great Britain), and within the framework of that cooperation – coordinated the work of the Polish team. The final result of a series of nine workshops was the textbook ‘Control over Municipal Finance’ - the first such an extensive study on the Polish market in the field of methodology, techniques and procedures for controlling the financial management of municipalities, inter-municipal associations, municipal legal entities and local self-government councils - control carried out by Regional Chambers of Audit in Poland.
