Learn more about us

Rigsrevisionen is an independent organisation placed under the Parliament.

Rigsrevisionen examines whether government funds are used effectively and as intended by the Danish parliament. To determine that, we audit the financial statements of all government departments, agencies and other public bodies and perform major studies of specific policy areas. 

We are an independent institution placed under the Danish parliament (the Folketing) headed by an Auditor General, and we are employing around 315 people.  

Governing legislation

The functions, duties and powers of Rigsrevisionen are prescribed in The Auditor General Act.

The Public Accounts Committee

The results of our studies and audits are reported to the six members of the Danish Public Accounts Committee. The members of the committee are appointed by the Folketing.
