The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Ministry of Transport has managed validation resources in a manner that ensured that the planned railway projects could be implemented. The report answers the following questions:
- Has Banedanmark secured a satisfactory overview of whether the demand for validation resources in the planned railway projects can be met?
- Has Banedanmark made a satisfactory effort to ensure the availability of the validation resources required to implement planned railway projects?
It is Rigsrevisionen’s assessment that the Ministry of Transport has failed to manage validation resources in a satisfactory manner that ensured that the planned railway projects could be implemented. As a consequence, Banedanmark has been forced to postpone and cancel planned railway improvements.
Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in November 2020 at the request of the Danish Public Accounts Committee.
