Rigsrevisionen audits the Danish public accounts based on the provisions of the Danish Auditor General Act. The audit assists the Danish Public Accounts Committee in their processing of the public accounts, and the members of the Danish parliament in their approval of the accounts. We issue independent audit opinions on the accounts at ministry level, but we also issue an opinion on the overall Danish public accounts. In addition to our audit of financial statements, we also undertake major studies of specific policy areas. Also the results of these studies are reported to the Danish Public Accounts Committee.
