We review project regularly
Every year we carry out at least 50 in-depth reviews of our funded project. The right to review a project follows from our general terms and conditions (see § 8.1, General terms and conditions). It is valid during the project period and for ten years after the last payment.
We can choose to review both ongoing and completed project. Which project are selected to be reviewed is done both randomly and based on what we believe may involve high risk.
The audit is carried out by external auditors.
If we suspect crime in project, we report it to the police.
