The study assesses whether the builder, the Capital Region of Denmark, ensured that the budget for the construction of the New North Zealand Hospital was robust and whether the Ministry of the Interior and Health’s supervision of the construction project has been adequate. A robust budget is characterised by realistic expenditure and a plan for contingencies.
In the opinion of Rigsrevisionen, it is not satisfactory that the Capital Region of Denmark failed to draw up a robust budget for the construction of the New North Zealand Hospital. In failing to do so, the project was inadequately funded from the beginning and has become significantly more expensive than planned. Additionally, the supervision of the project by the Ministry of the Interior and Health has not been entirely satisfactory.
Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in November 2022.
