The Danish regional TV 2 stations are required to produce regional news for television, internet and other platforms in compliance with the wishes of the audiences and the requirements defined in the public-service contracts that the regions enter with the Ministry of Culture.
The purpose of the study is to assess the transparency in the activities of the regional stations and the extent to which the Ministry of Culture is fulfilling its duties as holder of the contracts with the regional stations. The report answers the following questions:
- Do the TV 2 regional stations have sufficient knowledge of the relationship between costs and output?
- Is the Ministry of Culture managing the contracts with the regional TV 2 stations in a clear and satisfactory manner?
Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in October 2015.
