The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Ministry of Taxation’s financial management of the project has been satisfactory. The study is based on the principle that the ministry must adhere to generally accepted principles concerning financial management in the development of the property assessment system. The report answers the following questions:
- Has the Ministry of Taxation established an adequate basis for financial management of the development of the public property assessment system?
- Has the Ministry of Taxation’s financial management of the development of the IT system, which is intended to provide the basis for public property assessments, been sufficiently tight?
It is Rigsrevisionen’s assessment that the Ministry of Taxation’s financial management of the development of the new public property assessment system has not been satisfactory. The ministry has not adhered to generally accepted principles concerning financial management of projects, neither in relation to establishing a basis for management nor in relation to following up on the interrelation between budget, consumption and deliveries. It follows that the financial management of the project should be considerably strengthened.
Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in January 2017.
