Torres Novas is a municipality in the Portuguese Centro region, 100 km north of Lisboa and with almost 40.000 inhabitants. As a public institution, Municipality of Torres Novas belongs to the Portuguese public sector structure, with an elected body and permanent technical services ensuring different duties to its population and visitors. All public costs are supported by the Portuguese public accounting system, which answers to European regulation in the field. It has its own financial services, ensuring transparency and equal rights and opportunities to supplying companies. Besides internal auditor and controlling procedures, those services have to answer to regular inspections by national regulators.
