This is how we carry out major studies

The major studies follow a process that includes a preliminary study, an examination of the policy area and a follow-up process.

Preliminary study

The actual study – or examination – is preceded by a preliminary study, during which we establish how we want to design the study.

The point of departure for our major studies is the study design and audit criteria.

Follow-up process

First, we follow up the reports in so-called memorandums on the minister’s response and subsequently, if necessary, we send a follow-up memorandum to the relevant minister. This will be followed by one or several continued memorandums until the case in question can be closed.
