“Earlier, every third request for funding had these errors,” Sigita Rojutė, director of the National Audit Office's 6th Audit Department, told Verslo Žinios.

“The statistically calculated amount of possibly inappropriately used funds in expenditures declared for the European Commission fell from 2.44% in 2009 to 0.42% in 2014.”

According to this information, Verslo Žinios reports that about €5.5 million could have been used inappropriately in 2014.
