The report is about the Danish central government’s use of consulting services.
The purpose of the examination was to clarify the central government’s use of consultants on the basis of cases selected from various ministry departments. The report answers the following questions:
- Are government bodies procuring and using consultants appropriately?
- Is the data held by the Ministry of Finance and other relevant ministries on central government’s use of consultants reliable and how has spending on consultants developed in the years 2008 to 2013?
Rigsrevisionen launched the study in the autumn 2013 at the request of the Public Accounts Committee.
