The report concerns the centralisation of the government’s payroll administration in the Danish Ministry of Finance. The objective of merging payroll administration was to ensure efficient payroll administration through digitalisation, standardisation and economies of scale.
The overall objective of the study is to assess whether payroll administration in the government has in general become more efficient since the merger. The report answers the following questions:
- Has centralising government payroll administration in the Ministry of Finance overall led to the estimated cost savings?
- Has the digitalisation and standardisation of the government’s payroll administration contributed to more efficient work flows?
- Has centralising the government’s payroll administration in the Ministry of Finance contributed to enhancing the quality of payroll administration?
Rigsrevisionen took initiative to launch the study in autumn 2012.
