Upcoming publication: Social and health services assessment model – provision and utilization of information

The aim of the audit is to examine whether the provision of financial information on social and health services, and the related indicators and assessment model have been planned appropriately. The audit also aims to investigate whether they provide a true picture of the need for and sufficiency of funding for social and health services. In addition, the audit will examine how assessment information is utilized in the planning of general government finances. Social and health care expenditure account for the majority of public expenditure, and any increase in the efficiency of operations can therefore lead to significant savings. A well-functioning assessment model has thus a significant indirect impact on central government finances.
