Report on the regions’ use of consultants


Report no. 19/2016

The regions spent approximately DKK 1 billion on consultancy services in 2015. The regions mainly use consultants for assignments within IT, management, accounting and auditing. 

The purpose of the study is to assess whether the regions ensure value for money from the use of consultants. The report answers the following questions:

  • Are the regions ensuring value for money from the use of consultants?
  • Are the regions supporting a strategic approach to the use of consultants? 

It is Rigsrevisionen’s assessment that the regions have not, to the extent required, ensured value for money from the use of consultants, and at the same time, the regions have failed to comply with the legislation and good principles of administration in a considerable number of procurement transactions.  This is considered unsatisfactory by Rigsrevisionen. 

Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in October 2016.
