Co-operation

The role of the Public Accounts Committee

The six members of the Public Accounts Committee are appointed by the Parliament and have – as the only external body – authority to ask Rigsrevisionen to carry out major studies of particular policy areas. The committee members meet once a month to review and comment on the reports and memorandums prepared by Rigsrevisionen. Most importantly, the committee reviews Rigsrevisionen’s annual report on the audit of the public accounts and forwards its comments to the accounts to the Parliament.
