Summary/Abstract: The purpose of our investigation was to analyze the current operational status of 16 elite sports federations (biking, boxing, fencing, gymnastic, judo, track and field, kayak-canoeing, modern pentathlon, rowing, shooting, skating, swimming, tennis, table tennis, volleyball and wrestling), which have been the recipients of extra funding by the Hungarian government. The Hungarian Olympic Committee (HOC) contracted our university to run the non-financial audit, including interviews with leaders of the federations and completing a questionnaire by experts of the associations. Firstly, we examined the associations’ organograms and discovered that 31.25% of the federations have not had any organogram and that only 18.75% had a current, topical and detailed one. Secondly, we investigated the written missions of the sport organizations and found that 31.25% don’t have any, while 43.75% of the federations had a current, topical and detailed mission.
