If you have complained about a decision that can be brought to the Speaker of the Danish parliament, in accordance with the Instruction for the Auditor General, your letter of complaint to us will be forwarded to the Speaker for processing.
Your data may also be passed on to a third party, if it is considered necessary for the processing of, for instance, a hearing or a briefing of relevant authorities to decide on a request for access to public documents. Rigsrevisionen may have an obligation to pass on your data, if we receive a request for access to your personal data. This obligation does not include confidential data.
