Internal control and risk management

Internal control aims to ensure that an organisation reaches its objectives. It covers all measures and procedures that contribute to this aim.

These measures and procedures can provide a reasonable certainty that:

  • activities are in accordance with the law
  • funds are secure
  • activities are performed effectively
  • true and fair information on finances and performance is generated.

The arrangement of internal control is based on the Budget Act. Under the Budget Act, arrangements for internal control are run by each agency’s management, which is responsible for ensuring that the arrangements are appropriate and adequate.
