This report concerns the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs' management of support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (the EMFF) in the period 2014-2017.
The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is managing support from the EMFF to the fisheries sector correctly. The report answers the following questions:
- Is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs managing funding from the EMFF in a manner that allows the ministry to determine whether the basic admissibility conditions for receiving support have been fulfilled?
- Has the Ministry of Foreign Affairs ensured that the applications fulfil a number of other important criteria for receiving EMFF support?
Rigsrevisionen criticises strongly the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' overall management of support to the fisheries sector from the EMFF.
Rigsrevisionen initiated the study that springs from an audit of support from the EMFF in the Danish Agricultural Agency that Rigsrevisionen conducted in the autumn 2017.
