The report addresses the government’s practice of making publicly funded grants available to restricted groups of potential applicants.
The purpose of the study is to assess whether the ministries’ practice of making certain grants available to restricted groups of applicants is in compliance with good grant administration principles. The report answers the following questions:
- How many grant programmes are available to restricted groups of applicants?
- How do the grant providers restrict the respective groups of applicants?
- Is the practice followed by the ministries in promoting the grant programmes ensuring awareness of the grants among all prospective applicants?
Rigsrevisionen launched the study in December 2014 at the request of the Public Accounts Committee.
