The report is about the Danish Prison and Probation Service's maintenance of the Danish state and local prisons.
The objective of the study is to assess whether the Prison and Probation Service and the Ministry of Justice have ensured efficient maintenance of the Danish state and local prisons in the period 2008-2011 to the extent that they can be considered to be in a well-ordered and secure condition.
The report answers the following questions:
- Has the Prison and Probation Service planned and prioritized maintenance to ensure optimal use of funds?
- Has the Prison and Probation Service estimated the need for maintenance in a transparent manner?
- Has the Ministry of Justice actively monitored whether the state and local prisons are in a well-ordered and secure condition?
Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in October 2011.
