Rigsrevisionen is independent in its planning and choice of audit approach and methodology. We perform the audits on behalf of the six members of the Public Accounts Committee, who subsequently comment on the reports and submit them to the Danish parliament (the Folketing).
We publish approximately 25 reports every year. One third of the subjects of these reports are decided on by the Public Accounts Committee and the rest by Rigsrevisionen. Audits are planned on the basis of assessments of materiality and risk. Some studies concern only one department whereas others address the same issue over several departments.
Ensuring that action is taken on the points raised or recommendations made in our audit reports is crucial for the effectiveness of our work. The Danish audit model includes a follow-up procedure that ensures effective follow-up.
