The steering system as a whole provides preconditions for operational performance and the verification of accountability. The main question in the audit was whether the steering system in the administrative sector of the Ministry of Defence is adequate to ensure performance in the administrative sector. The audit question was divided into five parts: planning, management, reporting, accounting and evaluations systems, and internal control. The audit did not evaluate performance in the administrative sector as such but focused on the arrangement of steering and steering methods in the administrative sector. This document contains a summary of the main results of the audit. The entire audit report is available only in Finnish.
